Reprogramming DNA and Cells
A human or other multicellular organism stem cell is an undifferentiated, or "blank" cell.
The stem cell is capable of giving rise to an indefinite number of the same type of cells.
It is unique from other cells in that it can become any number of differentiated cells, including nerve, muscle or skin cells, thus suggesting a certain "programmability."
