Hematopoiesis is the formation of all blood lineages, including myeloid and lymphoind cells. The process starts from a hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). HSCs are multipotential stem cells which reside mostly in fetal liver in fetus and in the bone marrow in adult animal. Based on their potential to differentiate to sublineages, HSCs can be further defined as short-term and long-term stem cells.
