Hepatic Stellate Cell Genomics
1. Sanger sequencing: DNA sequencing in activated HSCs under the treatment of drug is performed using Sangers dideoxy method.
2. Next Generation Sequencing: High throughput sequencing using an illumina miseq machine is carried out with complete analysis and interpretation in hepatic stellate cells under the treatment of drug.
3. Analysis of big data: Big data analytics is the steps of analysing large data sets containing a variety of data types to unravel hidden patterns and unknown correlations. The findings and its interpretations may lead to new horizons of drug discovery; developing a a more effective drug for liver diseses.
