We now use the results of our mathematical analyses in the previous chapters to make predictions about the general behavior of colony growth in culture. We will emphasize contrasts between colonies originating from stem cells and colonies originating from more mature cells that lack the capability of self-renewal, which in our model are macrophage progenitors. We will also describe the pattern of growth with increasing time in a heterogeneous culture.
