With the prevalence of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) growing worldwide, the availability of primary human cells from these respiratory diseases is critical to increase research and knowledge about the disease at a cellular level. In this study, we sought to identify genes differentially regulated in asthma and COPD lung fibroblasts (DHLF-asthma and DHLF-COPD).
This white paper summarizes a study comparing normal versus COPD lung fibroblasts and normal versus asthma lung fibroblasts to explore differences in gene expression among the donor samples.
Life science R&D is developing incredible solutions to global problems. But this ground breaking work is often being done with outdated tools that weren't designed with the complexity of life science in mind. Let's explore the core questions that R&D organizations are struggling to answer.
