Enroll now for the 2016 Real-time PCR Readiness Workshop and Wet Lab
(September 19th-23rd, 2016)
The lecture series is given from 9am – 2pm, September 19th – 21st. It is aimed at giving participants a better understanding of qPCR. A wide range of topics will be discussed, including theoretical concepts, experimental design, primer/probe design, sample preparation and extraction, quality control of gDNA and total RNA, contamination control and monitoring, optimization and troubleshooting of qPCR, gene expression, mRNA, digital PCR, NGS, quantification strategies in RT-qPCR, and data analysis and interpretation.
The wet lab section is optional and given from 2 – 5pm, September 21st and 8:30am – noon, September 22nd and 23rd. This hands-on course is designed to reinforce topics discussed in lecture and is ideal for beginners with minimal qPCR experience. Participants will be trained by the qPCR experts from the Real-time PCR Core Facility team. Hands-on training will include cDNA synthesis, standard curves, and self-generated data analysis. All specialized protocols will be provided. Limited space is available in the lab section, so early registration is encouraged!
