qPCR Newsletter - October 2008




Dear researcher,
dear Gene Quantification page reader,

Our newsletter informs about the latest news in quantitative real-time
PCR (qPCR and qRT-PCR), which are compiled and summarised on the Gene
Quantification homepage. The focus of this newsletter issue is:

single-cell handling The purpose of this single-cell handling page is
to provide researchers and clinicians with workflows and resources for
single-cell molecular analysis such as RT-PCR, quantitative PCR, and
sequencing and with a focus on the front-to-backhandling of single
cells
=3D>  http://single-cell-handling.gene-quantification.info

Interest in single cell molecular analysis has risen dramatically over
the last couple of years, chiefly because single cell molecular
analysis is the only way to research genetic heterogeneity, i.e.,
differences in copy number or gene expression levels between
individual cells, or genetically analyze very rare cells such as
circulating tumor or fetal cells. Single cell molecular analysis has
provided new insight in diverse research areas such as immunology,
oncology, stem cells or forensics. However, an often overlooked aspect
of single cell analysis is the difficulties of handling single cells
for molecular analysis associate with all three major methods for
single cell manipulation:

- Micromanipulation
- LCM =3D Laser Capture Microdissection
- Flow cytometry
- Publications
- Interviews, Talks and Posters
