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
