TALK & POSTER CALL for qPCR 2011 Event - 5th international qPCR
Symposium & Industrial Exhibition & Application Workshop
Main topic is "Molecular Diagnostics:  from single-cells  to  Next-
28th March - 1st April 2011, Technical University of Munich,
Physiology-Weihenstephan,  Freising-Weihenstephan,  Germany

The Chair of Physiology Weihenstephan at the Technical University of
Munich is organizing the 5th international qPCR 2011 Event taking
place March 28th - April 1st 2011 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).
More than 60 international speakers will present their latest research
findings in the qPCR field. Focus of the event will be on Molecular
Diagnostics - from single-cells to Next Generation Sequencing.

Symposium CALL for TALK & POSTER abstracts for the following sessions
presented at the qPCR 2011 symposium:
Molecular diagnostics in single-cells;  High throughput analysis in
qPCR & Next Generation Sequencing;  MIQE and QM strategies in qPCR;
small RNAs qPCR - microRNA and siRNA Applications;  Digital PCR  &
Nano-fluidics;  Pre-analytical Steps,  qPCR BioStatistics &

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 & Next Generation Sequencing, improved
instrumentation, high performance nucleic acid extraction, 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. A specific focus will be on the application of the
=93MIQE Guidelines=94, on optimization and standardization of the
quantitative PCR workflow.

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 =93Function=

In connection with the symposium three practical qPCR Workshops will
be held March 30th =96 1st April 2011 by the TATAA Biocenter
( - 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 data analysis - Biostatistics &
Expression Profiling;  (3) MIQE guidelines  &  Practical primer-

An Industrial Exhibition will take place parallel to the symposium,
with 30 leading biotechnology companies presenting their latest
developments and services 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.
Participating companies and event sponsors:   Roche Applied Science,
Agilent Technologies, Bio-Rad, Qiagen, Exiqon, Biosearch Technologies,
Sigma Life Science, IDT - Integrated DNA Technology, Nanostring,
Thermo Fisher Scientific, Fluidigm, Premier Biosoft International, =85
und more.
