qPCR Workshops:

3-days Basic practical qPCR course @ GeneCore BTU, CAS, BIOCEV

Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) is a vital tool in scientific research due to its ability to accurately measure and analyse DNA or RNA samples. It enables precise quantification of gene expression levels, providing valuable insights into biological processes and disease mechanisms.
The Gene Core facility, in close collaboration with the Laboratory of Gene Expression, is hosting a comprehensive 3-day Basic Practical qPCR Course. GeneCore is a specialized service provider that focuses on gene expression analysis and its application in various experiments. With nearly 15 years of experience in lecturing on qPCR courses, as well as offering comprehensive training in Single Cell Analysis, miRNA Analysis, Digital PCR, and NGS Library Preparation, we have developed a strong expertise in molecular biology education and practical laboratory techniques.

Course schedule:
1.Day: Introduction to qPCR, Experimental design, Assay design, 1st Experiment
2.Day: Normalization and Quantification, Assays validation, 2nd Experiment
3.Day: Sample preparation and QC, Reverse transcription, MIQE guidelines, 3rd Experiment
Lunch, snacks and coffee are included in the course fee.
Printed course materials are included in the course fee.
The course fee does not include accommodation, breakfast, dinner or travel expenses.

Worldwide Gene Quantification Symposia, Meetings, and Conferences in the field of

The Ghent University Consortium for digital PCR is organizing the European Digital PCR Symposium and Workshop from 6-8 February 2024 in Ghent

The one-day symposium (6 February) will highlight the diverse applications of digital PCR, including cancer monitoring, infectious disease quantification and many more. 
The two-day workshop (7-8 February) will teach you the ins and outs of digital PCR, including assay and experiment design, assay optimization, data analysis, good experimental practice and data reporting. The course will offer hands-on sessions supported throughout by state-of-the-art applications.

Registrations are open (early bird until 22 November)
Oral and poster abstracts are welcome.

Microgenomics 2023

3rd International Symposium on Microgenomics

In the previous editions of the International Symposium on Microgenomics, more than 200 people participated in each of the first two editions in 2014 and 2016
 and over 100 during each of our four 2021 webinar series.

Here are a few of their comments:
 “Great as well” – “Very good quality with major scientists” – “Most of them were excellent and they corresponded to my expectations”
“Quality was really high” – “The invited speakers were great” – “High quality of presentations and the projects presented were very interesting”
“Perfect” – “Good organization” – “Very good ! Good food and friendly people!”

As in the 2014 and 2016 editions, in the 2023 event, internationally renowned speakers, experts in their field, will be presenting an overview
of the present knowledge for obtaining high quality cells, extracellular vesicles (EV) or molecules whether in plants, animals or humans, from agriculture to medicine.

MicroGenomics 2023
New methodologies and strategies for rare and small sample analysis -- from agriculture to medicine

Four scientific sessions:
1) New Methodological Approaches and Instruments in
MicroGenomics Analysis
2) Advances in solid-tissue Analysis & Spatial-Omics

3) Circulating Biomarkers - EVs and Single-Cells
4) Integrative Analysis - from multi-omics to Bioinformatics

The meeting is postponed to spring 2024

qPCR Seminars and Education Programs:

Free of charge web seminars

Sigma-Aldrich is pleased to be able to bring you a series of webex seminars dedicated to qPCR. They will include technical presentations from international speakers discussing the latest techniques and aspects of qPCR. To register, go to QPCR Seminars
Sigma-Aldrich has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar series devoted to the technical aspects of qPCR and RT-qPCR.

Expert speakers will cover areas such as:
  • QPCR assay design and optimisation
  • Template handling and purification
  • Focus on the optimisation of RT-qPCR
  • Various approaches to genetic analysis
  • Working with limiting samples
  • Data analysis
  • Troubleshooting
  • Assay improvement option for challenging assays
  • LNA technology and application
Seminar grading key:
  • Level 1 - terrified and beginners
  • Level 2 - something for everyone but a background knowledge is assumed
  • Level 3 - improvers, seminars focused on specific areas of interest
  • Level 4 - brave and experienced, delving into the fine detail and the more troublesome aspects of the technique

New seminars

This six webinar series on PCR will be based on MIQE guidelines. MIQE, Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative-Real Time PCR, helps scientists to design and report reliable and reproducible qPCR results. They help others to understand and replicate already conducted experiments. In this webinar series we will discuss step by step critical points which need to be taken into consideration in order to acquire reliable data.

Topics will include:
  • Basic principles of  PCR, qPCR and ddPCR
  • qPCR Assay Design
  • Importance of Sample Quality in qPCR Analysis
  • Improving Assay Quality by Optimization and Validation
  • Data Analysis
  • Troubleshooting
