Haploid cells
Haploid cells are living cells, unlike diploid cells, containing a single set of chromosomes. Haploid stem cells are artificial cell lines experimentally derived in vitro in the form of different types of stem cells, which combine the characteristics of haploidy with a broad developmental potential and open the possibility to uncover biological mysteries at a genomic scale.

Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs)
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) - adult stem cells found in bone marrow and blood. HSCs are capable of producing cells that make up the blood and the immune system.

Hemocytoblast - is an undifferentiated hematopoietic cell, localized in the bone marrow, which is the parent cell of hematopoiesis.
