3 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

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

Day 3

Sample Preparation (Extraction of RNA and DNA)
Principles of RT
Priming methods for RT
RT optimization
The MIQE guidelines
Group discussion, bring your own questions
