qPCR 2007  -  FINAL CALL

Dear colleagues,
dear researchers,
dear company representatives,

On behalf of the Organisation Committee and the Scientific Board it is
great pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International qPCR Symposium &
Industrial Exhibition & Application Workshop to be held at the Center
of Life Science in Freising Weihenstephan, Technische Universität
München (Germany). The great international interest in the previous
meetings ( qPCR 2004 and qPCR 2005 ) with up to 465 participants in
each event from over 40 countries, and 30 international companies in
the qPCR Industrial Exhibition led us to the decision to repeat it in
spring 2007.
We have set the date for the qPCR 2007 Event   at  26 - 30th March
2007. The event location is the central lecture hall complex and the
foyer at TUM (Technical University of Munich) in Freising
Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich
is part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe, located close to the
Munich airport in the heart of Bavaria.


Leading academic researchers and industrial contributors in the field
will be participate in the symposium, which will be an arena for
fruitful discussions between researchers of different backgrounds.
Here you will find a list of the confirmed Symposium Talks
(preliminary). The Symposium Talks, various Poster Sessions,
Industrial Exhibition and three associated TATAA Application Workshops
offer an overview of the present knowledge and future developments in
qPCR technology and its wide applications.
