Event date: Oct 12-14, 2021 | One session per day
Western blot analysis is a method widely used in the lab today because of its versatility in detecting and measuring specific target proteins in a sample. However, in recent years the reproducibility and quality of western blotting data has been increasingly scrutinized. Publications have developed more stringent review guidelines for western blot data, based on recommendations arising from a 2014 meeting organized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the journals Science and Nature.
Our team of western blotting experts have put together this 3-part webinar series that is designed to help you avoid some of the pitfalls associated with western blotting and enable you to achieve publication-quality western blot results. This webinar series will share tips and provide step-by-step guidance on how to improve the quality and reproducibility of data for both qualitative and quantitative western blotting, with attention on some of the newer guidelines.
Each session will include a 30-minute presentation and 15 minutes of live Q&A. All sessions will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
