2 DAYS HANDS-ON QPCR

Target audience: Beginners to Medium experienced qPCR users

Entrance qualifications: Basic Molecular biology or similar

Description: The basic real-time qPCR course. You will aquire a comprehensive overview of the possibilities with real-time PCR, how to use it and how to analyze the results. The course contains:

Day 1

Basic PCR theory
The theory of real-time PCR
Applications and possibilities of qPCR. Comparison of qPCR with regular PCR.
Review of currently available detection technologies (SYBR Green I, hydrolysis probes, Molecular Beacons, etc)
Different instrument platforms and their typical uses
Primer design
The problem of primer-dimer formation and how to minimize them
Probe design
Experimental design and optimization
Basic data handling and analysis

Day 2

Introduction to quantification principles
Quantification strategies, uses and limitations
Calculations using different relative quantification methods
Strategies for normalization of qPCR data
In situ calibration for compensation of inhibition in samples
Absolute quantification

Self-Assembling, Biomimetic Membranes May Aid Water Filtration
A synthetic membrane that self assembles and is easily produced may lead to better gas separation, water purification, drug delivery and DNA recognition, according to an international team of researchers.
Error Correction Mechanism in Cell Division
Cell biologists have reported an advance in understanding the workings of an error correction mechanism that helps cells detect and correct mistakes in cell division early enough to prevent chromosome mis-segregation and aneuploidy, that is, having too many or too few chromosomes.

New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
