Cells Decoded: Scientists Discover How Cells Build Their Inner Skeletons

Scientists at Singapore’s Agency for Science- Technology and Research (A*STAR) have discovered how mammalian cells build their internal skeletons during the earliest stages of life. The research team- led by Dr Nicolas Plachta at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB)- believes this discovery paves the way for designing new methods of monitoring embryo development during assisted reproduction and preimplantation genetic diagnosis. 

The team’s findings were published in leading scientific journal Science on 1 September 2017. For more information- please refer to A*STAR's Scientific Advisory attached under "Related Files".
