11 Sep 2012 - 14 Sep 2012 - Piran, Slovenia

Bookmark and Share


qPCR Experience Boot camp will focus on real-time PCR gene expression and microorganism detection but will also cover qPCR's other applications such as single cell qPCR, digital PCR and will include extensive practical sessions, troubleshooting* section and a Dr. Stephen A. Bustin as a guest lecturer.

The hands-on 4-day Boot Camp is suitable also for qPCR beginners and will cover review of qPCR theory, practical guidance on sample preparation and RNA quality control, amplicon design, quality assurance as well as hands-on lab and data analysis sessions. Instructors, all experienced researchers and users of qPCR technology, will also be available for discussions.

The workshop is organised in collaboration with National Institute of Biology. The lectures and dry-lab hands-on sessions will take place at the Marine Biological Station (MBS) in Piran, situated directly on the Mediterranean coast. The wet-lab sessions will take place in ISO accredited laboratories of National Institute of Biology in Ljubljana which include state-of-the-art qPCR centre.

All participants of last year's qPCR Experience Boot Camp would recommend it to others!

So join us in September on our second Boot Camp and tame the knowledge of real-time PCR in a lovely, relaxing and energetic environment of an old coastal town of Piran, a pearl of Slovenian coast.
