Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Cells taken at a stage of embryo development have the potential to differentiate into all of the different tissue types of an organism. These embryonic stem (ES) cells are therefore of great interest in possible transplant therapies for genetic disease. ES cells have previously been obtained from some mammalian species, but not others. In his Perspective, Gearhart discusses a report in the same issue by Thomson et al. in which the successful derivation of ES cell lines from human cells is described.
