Summary "The Cell Biology of Stem Cells" discusses multiple aspects of stem cell biology, ranging from their basic molecular characteristics to the in vivo stem cell trafficking of adult stem cells and the adult stem-cell niche, and ends with a visit to regeneration and cell fate reprogramming. It provides much of the current understanding of the cell biology of stem cells and discusses many of the open questions that remain to be answered
