Real-time PCR technology is an essential technique in every molecular biology lab for many reasons: impecable sensitivity, accuracy and scalability to high-throughput. It is therefore applied in various areas of life sciences, from pathogen or GMO determination and quantification, gene expression studies, genotyping etc.
If you haven't mastered it yet, here's your chance. The hands-on 4-day Boot Camp is suitable also for qPCR beginners and will cover review of qPCR theory, practical guidance on sample preparation and RNA quality control, amplicon design, quality assurance as well as hands-on lab and data analysis sessions. Instructors, all experienced researchers and users of qPCR technology, will also be available for discussions. Boot Camp will also host Dr. Stephen A. Bustin as a guest lecturer.
The workshop is organised in collaboration with National Institute of Biology. The lectures and dry-lab hands-on sessions will take place at the Marine Biological Station (MBS) in Piran, situated directly on the Mediterranean coast. The wet-lab sessions will take place in ISO accredited laboratories of National Institute of Biology in Ljubljana which include state-of-the-art qPCR centre.
All participants of last year's qPCR Experience Boot Camp would recommend it to others!
So join us in September on our second Boot Camp and tame the knowledge of real-time PCR in a lovely, relaxing and energetic environment of an old coastal town of Piran, a pearl of Slovenian coast.
