Training: Real-Time PCR Seminar Announcement
Key Steps to Generating High Quality Real-time PCR (RT-qPCR) data that meets the MIQE Guidelines
Speaker; Sean Taylor PhD Bio-RAD Laboratories
Date: Monday, Nov 22th, 2010
Location: University of Toronto, Donnelly Center, 2nd Floor, Red Seminar Room
In an effort to assist the scientific community to produce consistent, high quality data from RT-qPCR experiments, The Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments (MIQE) guidelines were recently published. The ultimate goal of MIQE is to establish clear guidelines for the information required o publish RT-qPCR data to allow reviewers and editors to measure the technical quality of submitted manuscripts against an established yardstick and to facilitate easier replication of experiments described in published studies. This talk focus on how to apply the MIQE guidelines to design a solid experimental approach for RT-qPCR.
