ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study regarding the potential of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to differentiate into any of the body's cell type such as somatic cells. Topics include the advantages, characterization, and limitations of iPSCs, the evaluation of genes with pluripotency, and the ability of iPSCs to expand which enables skin researchers to make human models for various genetic skin disorders.
