Common respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often present differently in individuals.  What is the genetic basis for this difference and how can we use knowledge of genetic factors to support patient care? Additionally, the implications of applying genetics across diverse populations are explored.
