Real Time PCR Gene Expression Analysis Workshop

Introduction

The workshops aim to give participants a deep and objective understanding of real-time quantitative PCR for gene expression study. The workshop is intended for academic or industrial researchers considering mRNA expression analysis using DNA binding dye chemistries and real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR). The participants will experience RNA extraction from tumour and normal cell lines, converting RNA to cDNA, optimizing a qPCR reaction, assessing primers efficiency and determining the expression level of their genes of interest. 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 many more. Data analysis and simple statistical tests will be included. This workshop offers extensive hands-on training by experts in the field. Some previous experience using standard PCR or real-time PCR is helpful but not necessary for workshop attendees.

Objectives

Our objectives are:

  • To give participants a combination of lecture and hands-on laboratory experience using qPCR methods
  • To expose and introduce a basic concept of qPCR and the analysis involved
  • To promote UMBI’s expertise in qPCR and network/linkage between UMBI and other scientists
  • To build and strengthen the network between academia (UMBI) and industry partners
  • To promore awareness of the applications of qPCR in research
  • To support research in Molecular Medicine

Organizer

UKM Medical Molecular Biology, UMBI (UKM) and in collaboration with Next Gene Scientific Sdn. Bhd.
