qPCR 2009 Event Agenda is online =3D> http://online-agenda.qpcr2009.net/
The event is organized jointly by Chair of Physiology, Technische
Universit=E4t M=FCnchen (TUM)   and   BioEPS GmbH, Freising, Germany


The Physiology Weihenstephan at the Technische Universit=E4t M=FCnchen is
organizing the 4th international qPCR 2009 Event taking place March 9
=96 13, 2009 in Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany. Scientists from all
around the world will come to exchange ideas, share experiences, and
discuss the exciting future of the perhaps most powerful analytical
technology ever developed in the life sciences area =96 the quantitative
real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). 230 invited international
scientists will present their latest research findings in the qPCR
field. Focus of the event will be on Molecular Diagnostic and
Molecular Markers.

We are proud to present 230 scientific contributions (86 talks & 144
posters) at the symposium.

It is a pleasure to announce the Nobel Prize Laureate Kary Mullis at
the symposium in an own session =9325th Anniversary of PCR=94. qPCR is an
improved form of the PCR technology that was awarded the 1993 years=92
Nobel price in Chemistry. Using qPCR the amount of target nucleic acid
in a complex sample can be determined with high precision, great
accuracy, excellent specificity and the ultimate sensitivity of
detecting a single molecule. The technique has revolutionized all
molecular sciences and diagnostic applications. Conference
presentations will include high throughput applications, improved
instrumentation, high performance nucleic acid extraction, immuno-qPCR
applications, single-cell applications, and application involving
siRNAs and microRNA. Further developments of qPCR technology that will
be presented include miniaturization, high throughput platforms, cost
efficacy, validity, flexibility, quality assessment and reliable data
calculations and interpretation. Today there is no field in the life
sciences research and diagnostics areas that has not introduced qPCR
technology for nucleic acid analysis. The combination with reverse
transcription enables determination of mRNA and widely opens the
window for =93Transcriptomics=94 =96 the first step of gene expression and
=93Functional Genomics=94.

In connection with the symposium four practical qPCR Workshops will be
held March 12 =96 13, 2009 by the TATAA Biocenter (www.tataa.com) - the
leading qPCR service provider in Europe. The 2-day workshops are
hosted by international renowned scientists and experts in the field.
The workshop themes will be:  (1) Classical qPCR Application
Workshop;  (2) qPCR Biostatistics & Expression Profiling;  (3) Sample
preparation & Nucleic acid extraction;  (4) High-Resolution-Melt
analysis & Immuno-qPCR.

An Industrial Exhibition will take place parallel to the symposium,
with 35 leading biotechnology companies presenting their latest
developments in the PCR field, including real-time PCR cyclers,
nucleic acid extraction robots, consumables, fluorescence dyes, DNA
and RNA detection and amplification chemistries, as well as real-time
PCR data analysis software.

The Physiology Weihenstephan at the Center of Life and Food Sciences
of Technische Universit=E4t M=FCnchen, chaired by Prof. Heinrich H. D.
Meyer, is a leading authority in the molecular physiology of mammalian
species. Cutting edge biochemical and molecular biology techniques are
established for basic and applied research on the regulation of
reproduction, lactation, immunology, and growth. Both traditional
endocrinology and paracrine regulations are studied in numerous
tissues. Dr. Michael W. Pfaffl is developing qRT-PCR methods, software
algorithms and tools for quantitative gene expression analysis. He
also maintains the leading qPCR information web page:
