Variation in gene expression among cell types, tissues, and organisms is commonly examined by reverse transcription quantitative PCR, or RT-qPCR. In this process, RNA is isolated from samples of interest and reverse-transcribed into complementary DNA (cDNA). The levels of gene expression are then determined from the quantity of cDNA amplified by PCR. The initial stages of the RT-qPCR workflow, such as RNA isolation and reverse transcription, can critically impact the accuracy of the quantitation of gene expression.
Learning Objectives:
  • Important considerations for RNA isolation
  • Tools for efficient cDNA preparation
  • Sources of poor RT-qPCR results
  • Tips for overcoming challenges, for highest success
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
