August 22 - 24, 2018

November 14 - 16, 2018

Workshop Cost: 

This workshop is designed to give participants a combination of lecture and hands-on laboratory experience using real-time PCR methods. As typical examples of the use of real-time PCR we will measure differential expression of RNA from different tissues. Clients will gain experience using DNA binding dyes and hydrolysis probe chemistries as well as multiplex real-time PCR. Lectures will include an overview of gene expression, assay design and optimization, template preparation, analysis of results, additional applications of real-time PCR technology, and more. Some previous experience using standard PCR or real time PCR is helpful but not necessary for workshop attendees.

This workshop is offered in collaboration with BIO-RAD.
