ScienceDaily (Oct. 3, 2009) — A research team led by Lucas Pelkmans at ETH Zürich has managed to decipher a well-known phenomenon that had, until now, remained unexplained: why cells of the same type can react differently, and what the reason for this is.The properties of a cell population determine the different cell activities observed in cells of the same type.

The scientists examined the cause of the well-known phenomenon of cell heterogeneity.
