Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) is an open access, peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to championing excellence in molecular study design, measurement, data analysis and reporting. Its focus is on the application of qualitative and quantitative molecular methodologies to all areas of clinical and life sciences.
The journal has two main aims:
1) to provide a forum for discussion and recommendation of guidelines designed to improve the accuracy of molecular measurement, its data analysis and the transparency of its subsequent reporting;
2) to publish molecular biology based studies that adhere to best practice guidelines, both current and future;

Dear researcher,
Dear company representative,
Dear friends,

The great international interest in the previous Gene Quantification Events from 2004 till 2017 with a constant audience of around 500 participants from all over the world motivates repeating the success next year. The 9th qPCR dPCR & NGS Event will take place from 18th to 22nd March 2019. We broaden our focus in genomics applications from quantitative RT-PCR, to digital PCR and the latest Next-Generation Sequencing Technologies as well as the connected integrative Multi-Omics data analysis. As in previous years, we offer a three-day scientific symposium with around 70 talks in two lecture halls. Parallel to the scientific symposium, an Industrial Exhibition will take place and around 35-40 international companies will present their latest molecular diagnostics, PCR and NGS services, hardware, technologies, and software applications. The symposium will be followed by five 2-day PCR & NGS-related Workshops that take place March 21st and 22nd and are powered by academic and commercial leaders in the field.

Event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM School of Life Sciences (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich are part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe (BioM), representing more than 250 companies and academic institutions, located close to the Munich airport (MUC) directly in the heart of Bavaria.

The focus topics of the qPCR dPCR & NGS 2019 Gene Quantification Event are:

Next Generation Biomarkers -- Liquid Biopsy, Multi-Omics, MicroGenomics

We are looking forward to meeting you in March 2019 at the Event in Freising-Weihenstephan
