Discovering mediators of chemoresistance in in vitro tumoroid models of pancreatic cancer

WT Pancreas Tumor
“We were able to perform high-quality and cost-effective single-cell RNA-sequencing with the Evercode kit”

Pancreatic cancer remains one of the deadliest malignancies in large part due to therapeutic resistance. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy remodel the tumor microenvironment, and interactions between cancer-associated fibroblasts and cancer cells modulate the therapeutic response and contribute to chemoresistance.

To identify and characterize candidate interactions between cancer cells and fibroblasts that may mediate therapeutic resistance, we utilized the Parse Evercode WT V2 assay to profile cells in a tumoroid co-culture model between tumor-derived cells and pancreatic stellate cells.
