The quality and efficiency of the preparation of genomic and proteomic samples is a key factor for producing high-throughput data of optimal quality. To be successful, it is critical to incorporate the most recent developments in each area, starting at a very early stage such as the collection and storage of samples.
Important questions need to be addressed such as: • How can high quality tissue be procured? • Is there a way to standardize extraction and storage protocols? • Which new separation technologies are reasonable to adopt? • How can the extraction for genomic and proteomic analyses be optimized? • What is the best way to handle DNA and RNA samples? • Can long term storage issues be solved? • Is it possible to minimize sample loss and maximize the analyte resolution?
These are only a few of the current bottlenecks most scientists are facing when trying to find high-throughput solutions. This conference will provide a good perspective on the problems and the progress in sample preparation.
