Researchers have figured out how to "coax" human embryonic stem cells to organize themselves using a geometric approach.

About seven days after conception the clump of cells that will soon be a human start to specialize and take on characters that reflect their future. In the past researchers have studied this process in animals and tried to coax human embryonic stem cells by exposing them to chemical signals, but hav...
