=========================================================================='s next InFocus Webcast, "Advances in DNA and RNA Diagnostics" is
scheduled for Thursday, January 31 at 10 am Pacific Time.

The development of nucleic acid diagnostic technologies is driven by the
need for efficient and accurate detection of genetic variation and
expression patterns among large sets of genes. This InFocus Webcast
explores the new platforms and technologies that are enhancing the speed,
reproducibility and reliability of nucleic acid detection,
modification and amplification.

Join us for a live discussion featuring these leaders in the field of
nucleic acid diagnostics:
