qPCR 2010 Event  -  Call for Abstracts



BioEPS GmbH is organizing the qPCR 2010 Event taking place April 7th =96
9th, 2010 in Vienna, Austria. 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).

We have the pleasure to announce the Call for Abstracts for the qPCR
2010 Event !

Finally we want to present 40 scientific talks from international
scientists and diagnostic companies in the qPCR field who will show
their latest research findings and newest technologies. The focus of
the qPCR 2010 Event will be =93The ongoing evolution of qPCR=94
representing all new and emerging techniques, applications and data
analysis methods.

Deadline is 31st January 2010   =3D>   http://submission.qPCR2010-Vienna.ne=

Talk topics:

MIQE and QM strategies in qPCR
The MIQE guidelines: minimum information for publication of
quantitative real-time PCR experiments. Following these guidelines
will encourage better experimental practice, allowing more reliable
and unequivocal interpretation of qPCR results. QM strategies in real-
time PCR to guarantee better and more valid results.

About qPCR:
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 MIQE
guidelines & QM strategies in qPCR, high performance nucleic acid
extraction, single-cell applications, Epigenetics & High-Resolution-
Melt analysis, circulating nucleic acids, and application involving
RNAi and microRNA.
Further developments of qPCR technology will be presented include
improved instrumentation, miniaturization, high throughput platforms,
cost efficacy, validity, flexibility, quality assessment and reliable
Cq calculations, expression data comparisons, and interpretation.
Today there is no field in the life sciences research, molecular
biology and diagnostics areas that has not introduced qPCR technology
for nucleic acid analysis. The combination with reverse transcription
enables determination of mRNA, microRNA and widely opens the window
for =93Transcriptomics=94 =96 the first step of quantitative =93Gene
Expression Profiling=94 and =93Functional Genomics=94.
An Industrial Exhibition will take place parallel to the symposium,
with 32 leading biotechnology companies presenting their latest
developments, including real-time PCR cyclers, NA extraction robots,
consumables, new fluorescence dyes, NA detection and amplification
chemistries, as well as real-time PCR data analysis software.
