Gene Quantification Newsletter
September 2002

Main focus of the GENE QUANTIFICATION web page 
(http://www.wzw.tum.de/gene-quantification/) is, to describe and summarize 
all technical aspects involved in quantitative gene expression analysis 
using real-time (kinetic) PCR  &  RT-PCR.
e.g. detection chemistry, assay specificity, sensitivity, reproducibility, 
robustness, intra- & inter-assay variations, kinetic PCR efficiency 
calculation, quantification strategies, optimisation strategy, data 
calculation and statistics,  etc. etc.

The GENE QUANTIFICATION web page illustrates the usefulness of reliable 
quantification strategies, e.g. absolute-, relative-quantification assays, 
and the difference between them in kinetic PCR & kinetic RT-PCR.

Main focus of the PHYSIOLOGY web page is, to describe all kind of kinetic 
RT-PCR applications in molecular Physiology, molecular Endocrinology, and 
molecular Immunology (mainly mammary gland immunology) are summarized on my 
new homepage   http://www.wzw.tum.de/gene-quantification/physiology.shtml
