Scientists at Tel Aviv University in collaboration with researchers at Harvard University have succeeded in tracking the progression of cell reprogramming (the process of coaxing adult cells to revert to an embryonic stem cell-like state, allowing scientists to later re-differentiate these cells into specific types with the potential to treat medical disorders).

They used flourescent markers to develop their live imaging approach. During the reprogramming process, the team was able to visually track whole lineages of a cell population from their single-cell point of origin.
