Aim of the course:
Real time Polymerase Chain Reaction is becoming more and more important in almost all laboratories. Especially in diagnostic laboratories real time PCR is a new, and promising, technique to identify bacteria, viruses and genetic alterations in human cells. The aim of this international short-course is to give the participants an in-depth view in the theoretical and practical knowledge of real time PCR techniques in molecular diagnostics. State-of-the-art experts in the field of real time PCR techniques from several diagnostic laboratories will provide theoretical and practical expertise.

Participants:
This course is developed for experienced laboratory technicians involved in the life sciences laboratories, incl. medical diagnostics, microbiology, genetics, pathology, immunology, etc.
Basic knowledge of molecular biology in general and PCR is a prerequisite. If you feel you lack the basic knowledge in PCR or the basic principles of real-time PCR, but you would like to participate in this quantitative PCR course, please note that the Avans Hogeschool also offers an international introductory short course: Principles, parameters, and applications of PCR (code 2545), which is especially suitable as a basic introduction to this course.

Course structure:
The course consists of a series of practical sessions interspersed with lectures and tutorials. 50% of the time is devoted to lectures and 50% is spent on "hands-on" experiments, covering techniques that may be directly applied in diagnostic laboratories. All participants will receive a practical manual containing all used protocols.
