Biobanks provide important capacity to collect large genomic data sets intended to enable the study of genetic signatures of an identified population. An essential step in genetic research is the isolation of high quality DNA or RNA. Many downstream biobanking applications are adversely affected by untreated or poor quality sample. Large amounts of cellular or other contaminating materials in complex mixtures often hinder many of the subsequent reactions and techniques. Thus, a method for the efficient, reliable and reproducible isolation of nucleic acids from complex biological mixtures is essential. This webinar presents innovative nucleic acid extraction technologies that help ensure high purity, high yield DNA/RNA. Speakers will also offer techniques for remote analysis and comparison of resulting data by multiple research groups in a biobanking workflow.
