The most important pathways
QIAGEN provides a broad range of assay technologies for biological development, cellular differentiation, and stem cell research, enabling analysis of gene expression and regulation, epigenetic modification, genotyping, and signal transduction pathway activation. During embryonic development, pluripotent stem cells differentiate into germ layers: ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm. These germ layers eventually differentiate into multipotent stem cells (progenitors), which progress into terminally differentiated cells. These tightly regulated developmental processes require specific changes to the epigenome, gene expression and cellular signaling. Solutions optimized for these research studies are organized into more focused research topics, shown below.
