What is it about?

in multifactorial diseases it is difficult to elicit the molecular pathways involved in the pathology. Here, we show how global transcriptomics can be an unbiased way to determine the molecular and biological processes induced in pterygium

Why is it important?

This is a relatively unbiased approach to look at the functional classes of genes that are deranged in pterygium.


The dataset is available for public download and further analysis.
