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

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

RT-PCR is the technique of choice for analysing mRNA in extremely low 
abundance.
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 defined
quantification strategies and calculation methods are needed.
