Main focus of GENE QUANTIFICATION web page is to describe 
and summarize all technical aspects involved in quantitative  
gene expression analysis using real-time (RT-) PCR. 
( specificity, sensitivity, reproducibility, intra- and inter-assay
variations, etc.)

The GENE QUANTIFICATION web page illustrates  
the usefulness of a reliable quantification strategy,  
and the difference between absolute vs. relative quantification  
assays in real-time (RT-) PCR. 

RT-PCR is the technique of choice for analysing mRNA in extremely low
Real-time RT-PCR using SYBR Green I detection combines the ease  
and necessary exactness to be able to produce reliable as well as
rapid results.
To obtain high accuracy and reliability in RT and real-time PCR highly
quantification strategies and methods are needed.
