    Human embryonic lung epithelial tips are multipotent progenitors that can be expanded in vitro as long-term self-renewing organoids

    Marko Z Nikolić et al.
    Improved characterisation of human embryonic lung development highlights human-mouse differences and facilitates the development of defined culture conditions for the expansion of self-renewing, multipotent human lung epithelial progenitor cells.

    Dynamics of embryonic stem cell differentiation inferred from single-cell transcriptomics show a series of transitions through discrete cell states

    Sumin Jang et al.
    Mammalian germ layer differentiation is characterized by transitions through discrete cell states, which are transcriptionally as well as functionally distinct.

    Epidermal cell turnover across tight junctions based on Kelvin's tetrakaidecahedron cell shape

    Mariko Yokouchi et al.
    The three dimensional structure of epidermal cells in the stratum granulosum provides the basis for the homeostasis of the tight junction barrier during cell turnover in the skin.

    A novel optical microscope for imaging large embryos and tissue volumes with sub-cellular resolution throughout

    Gail McConnell et al.
    A new type of microscope reveals detail of organelles inside every cell in the entirety of an intact embryo or tissue region over 100 cubic millimeters in volume.

    Lineage mapping identifies molecular and architectural similarities between the larval and adult Drosophila central nervous system

    Haluk Lacin, James W Truman
    Mapping individual neural stem cells to their corresponding embryonic and postembryonic progeny shows that these sets of neurons have profound molecular and anatomical similarities despite building different central nervous systems.

    Stem cell progeny contribute to the schistosome host-parasite interface

    James J Collins III et al.
    Stem cells are found to continually rejuvenate the epidermis of the human parasite Schistosoma mansoni.

    Cancer-associated TERT promoter mutations abrogate telomerase silencing

    Kunitoshi Chiba et al.
    TERT promoter mutations impair TERT silencing upon cellular differentiation and are sufficient to facilitate cellular immortalization without additional tumor selected changes, explaining why they are associated with a very specific tumor spectrum.

    Pericytes are progenitors for coronary artery smooth muscle

    Katharina S Volz et al.
    Progenitor cells for the muscle layer around the coronary arteries have been identified revealing a key step in how the embryo forms these important blood vessels.

    First quantitative high-throughput screen in zebrafish identifies novel pathways for increasing pancreatic β-cell mass

    Guangliang Wang et al.
    A novel high-throughput, whole organism chemical screening platform was used to identify existing drugs that increase pancreatic beta-cell mass in zebrafish, implicating unique roles for the NF-κB and serotonergic signaling pathways in regulating pancreatic biology.

    In vitro generation of human pluripotent stem cell derived lung organoids

    Briana R Dye et al.
    Directed differentiation of stem cells can generate ventral-anterior foregut spheroids that can expand into three-dimensional lung organoids with striking structural, cellular and molecular similarities to the human fetal lung.

    EGFR signaling promotes self-renewal through the establishment of cell polarity in Drosophila follicle stem cells

    Angela Castanieto et al.
    The specification of cell polarity is essential for self-renewal and the segregation of stem-cell and daughter-cell fates in an epithelial stem cell lineage.

    Multiple knockout mouse models reveal lincRNAs are required for life and brain development

    Martin Sauvageau et al.
    Long intergenic noncoding RNA molecules (lincRNAs) are shown to have critical roles in mammalian development and physiology in vivo.
