qPCR in Molecular Diagnostics qPCR in Molecular Diagnostics
February 12, 2013 |
Quantitative real-time PCR is a valuable technology used for diagnostics of diseases such as cancer and infectious diseases, and for the detection of bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens. This course covers aspects of incorporating qPCR into standard molecular diagnosis including the challenges involved, an overview of the technology available, and next steps.
Collaboration&Biospecimen Sharing between Multiple Biorepositories Collaboration&Biospecimen Sharing between Multiple Biorepositories
September 30, 2012 |
Few biorepositories contain sufficient numbers of samples to perform large research studies, necessitating collaboration between multiple sites. The mass availability of high-quality biological specimens for research requires the development of standardized methods for collection, long-term storage, retrieval and distribution. The use of standard operating procedures (SOPs) is fundamental and widespread. However, standardized data collection, rigorous data management, and uniform informed consent procedures are becoming increasingly valuable for collaboration between researchers in this network. This workshop is designed to discuss a new standard for successful collaboration, providing scientists and clinicians with methods to simplify specimen sharing, with complete phenotypic and clinical information associated with samples.
