Many diseases affect the ability to breathe in humans. Some are caused by smoking, while other lung problems can be caused by chemicals or other substances that are inhaled. The big problem for people with lung diseases and conditions is not being able to breathe impacts just about every aspect of their lives. Researchers from Yale have announced that they have created a cellular blueprint of the human lung.
The researchers say that the new blueprint will make it easier to understand design principals behind lung function and disease. The new development may also make it possible to bioengineer new lungs in the future. The data was obtained via single-cell technology, offering an ultra-high-resolution view of up to millions of individual cells at once.
