A ticket to the airways: scientists develop new way to study asthma

When visiting the doctor about a case of asthma, few people wish to spare more than a few lung cells for analysis. But tiny samples are useless for the latest genome-analysis techniques, such as gene chips. This month in Genome Research, scientists unveil a technique for reading a 'gene activity profile' in samples as small as 1-100 cells.
Applying the technique to airway biopsies from asthma patients reveals a new disease suspect, the NKCC1 gene.
