New research shows that dogs can beat expensive modern diagnostic methods in detecting cancer.
COFFEE BREAK NEWS FOR LIFE SCIENTISTS
Meet Jan Hellemans, CEO of Biogazelle, focused on unraveling the coding and non-coding regions of the genome.
Recently there’s been a lot of excitement building up within the molecular biology community about sequencing long reads, and by “long reads” I mean reads of several kb in length…
The method of choice for nucleic acid (DNA, RNA) quantification in all areas of molecular biology is real-time PCR or quantitative PCR (qPCR).
Will ddPCR replace qPCR technology?
Amplification efficiency higher than 100% would mean that in each qPCR cycle, more than two copies of the target sequence have been generated.
Is this possible?
How to present the ratio data?
Which are the most probable reasons for a false positive result and how to address the issue?
Researchers often wonder which statistical tests they should use with their qPCR data. Most frequently these questions arise when analysing gene expression data.
