Malignant mesothelioma is a very aggressive type of cancer that affects the cell membrane lining of the lungs and is primarily due to exposure to asbestos. This research sought to determine which experiment is best at quantifying the gene expression in mesothelioma cells using the statistical software program “R.” Results of the project can potentially benefit research efforts in finding a cure for malignant mesothelioma and identifying which technology is more efficient at determining the differential gene expression in their data for the most accurate results.
