Target audience: Beginners to Medium experienced qPCR users

Entrance qualifications: Hands-on qPCR module or similar knowledge

Description: Learn how appropriate statistics shall be selected and applied correctly to get the most out of your qPCR data. The two-days course covers the most of the same prinicples as the three-day analysis course but less comprehensive and with less practical excercises. The course contains:

Day 1- Statistical analysis of real-time PCR data

Basic principles of statistics
Advanced principles of statistics
Statistical tests
Ability to detect a difference

Day 2- Gene expression profiling with real-time PCR

Multiplate measurements
Standard curves and absolute quantification
Experimental design, Selecting reference genes
Relative quantification, Comparison of groups
Expression profiling

'Forensic Toolkit’ to Improve Evidence Detection and Analysis
Students from The University of Dundee have been developing a forensic `toolkit’ that will allow investigators to determine the age of fingerprints, detect traces of steel on bone from stabbings, and produce a biosensitive spray that can reveal traces of bodily fluids at crime scenes.

A CSIRO scientist who had his home broken into has developed a new crime scene identification technique to help fingerprint criminals.
Forensic Facial Examiners Can Be Near Perfect
In what might be the first face-off of its kind, trained forensics examiners from the FBI and law enforcement agencies worldwide were far more accurate in identifying faces in photographs than nonexperts and even computers.
Ancestral Background Can Be Determined By Fingerprints
A proof-of-concept study finds that it is possible to identify an individual’s ancestral background based on his or her fingerprint characteristics – a discovery with significant applications for law enforcement and anthropological research.

Blood, Teeth Samples Predict a Criminal's Age
Forensic biomedical scientists from KU Leuven have developed a test to predict individuals’ age on the basis of blood or teeth samples. This test may be particularly useful for the police, as it can help track down criminals or identify human remains.
Contactless Fingerprint Technology is Coming
Quickly moving through security checkpoints by showing your hand to a scanner seems straight out of science fiction, but NIST is working with industry to bring fast, touchless fingerprint readers out of the lab and into the marketplace.
