Ilya,
I didn’t name them “biased”, but research groups who discovered them did. And they did so, because they saw a very different pattern of population after primary transplant of single HSC. So, they decided to describe this biological phenomenon in this way (“biased HSC”). When I said that there is an agreement that biased HSC are stem cells but not commited progenotors, I based my opinion on (1) conclusions made in well known HSC heterogeneity studies, (2) commentaries to these studies published by experts, (3) talks from conferences and (4) personal communication (for instance with people from Eaves group). If you’re saying that there is a contradiction and diagreement in the field, plese link to it. I don’t remember I saw any contradictory and negative comments about these studies conclusions. If you’re expressing your personal opinion, I’m fine with it. I told your mine, which is in agreement of Eaves and Nakauchi groups.

I don’t think I discussed offtopic things, because all conclusions about HSC definition and heterogeneity based on aexperimental assays and their interpretation. If we don’t understand them, we will discuss about different thing on different languages.

PS: I’m sorry but forum platform doesn’t allow me reply under your comment precisely
