Hi. My name is Uma Lakshmipathy. I'm with the stem cell R&D at Life Technologies. My research team is involved in the development or reprogramming tools and platforms for stem cell characterization. Today, I would like to share our studies on the use of gene expression data for the identification of novel markers and for rapid characterization and standardization of pluripotent stem cells.

I'll start off with a brief introduction on pluripotent stem cells followed by current methods used to characterize these cells. I would then like to share two recent studies. The first study describes development of a focus gene expression panel for confirming function and pluripotencies of ESC and iPSC lines. This method relies on monitoring the expression of cell renewal and lineage markers in undifferentiated pluripotent cells and in their corresponding differentiating cells. The second study is focused on identification of CD44 as a negative mark of pluripotent cells.
