An Overview of Stem Cells

Som Kumar


Immature microorganisms are a class of undifferentiated cells that can separate into specific cell types. Generally, immature microorganisms originate from two fundamental sources:

• Embryos framed amid the blastocyst period of embryological advancement (embryonic immature microorganisms) and
• Adult tissue (grown-up immature microorganisms).

Both types are for the most part characterized by their strength, or potential to separate into various cell types, (for example, skin, muscle, bone, and so on.).
