Dear researcher,
dear Gene Quantification page reader,

Our newsletter informs about the latest news in quantitative real-time
PCR (qPCR and qRT-PCR), which are compiled and summarised on the Gene
Quantification homepage. The focus of this newsletter issue is:

- qPCR Data Analysis and qPCR Software Applications
- new qPCR reviews and interesting papers
- BabelFish translation service
- updated qPCR Event calendar 2006


Please visit our independent Academic & Industrial Information qPCR
Platform - The reference in qPCR!

A lot of qPCR companies and independent insitutions participate in our
qPCR information platform. On the company sub-pages new real-time
cyclers, consumables, new released kits and detection chemistries, as
well as innovative amplification technologies are presented. Links from
the sub-pages will lead you to the related product pages at the
respective homepage. You are welcome to join our Academic & Industrial
qPCR platform with your company or institution !

qPCR-DAMS - A Database Tool to Analyze, Manage, and Store Both Relative
and Absolute Quantitative Real-Time PCR data.
Jin N, He K, Liu L.; Physiol Genomics. 2006
Physiological Sciences, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, USA.

Quantitative real-time PCR is an important high throughput method in
biomedical sciences. However, existing software has limitations in
handling both relative and absolute quantification. We designed
qPCR-DAMS (Quantitative PCR Data Analysis and Management System), a
database tool based on Access 2003, to deal with such shortcomings by
the addition of integrated mathematical procedures. qPCR-DAMA allows a
user choose among four methods for data processing within a single
software package: (I) Ratio relative quantification, (II) Absolute
level, (III) Normalized absolute expression, and (IV) Ratio absolute
quantification. qPCR-DAMS also provides a tool for multiple reference
gene normalization. qPCR-DAMS has three quality control steps and a
data display system to monitor data variation. In summary, qPCR-DAMS is
a handy tool for real-time PCR users.

ePCR - A web server for performing electronic PCR

by Kirill Rotmistrovsky, Wonhee Jang and Gregory D. Schuler

National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Library of
Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20984, USA


'Electronic PCR' (e-PCR) refers to a computational procedure that
is used to search DNA sequences for sequence tagged sites (STSs), each
of which is defined by a pair of primer sequences and an expected PCR
product size. To gain speed, our implementation extracts short
'words' from the 3' end of each primer and stores them in a sorted
hash table that can be accessed efficiently during the search. One
recent improvement is the use of overlapping discontinuous words to
allow matches to be found despite the presence of a mismatch. Moreover,
it is possible to allow gaps in the alignment between the primer and
the sequence. The effect of these changes is to improve sensitivity
without significantly affecting specificity. The new software provides
a search mode using a query STS against a sequence database to augment
the previously available mode using a query sequence against an STS
database. Finally, e-PCR may now be used through a web service, with
search results linked to other web resources such as the UniSTS
database and the MapViewer genome browser. The e-PCR web server may be
found at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sutils/e-pcr

TATAA Biocenter Germany qPCR Application workshops:


TATAA Biocenter have found that the worldwide demand for training in
the field of quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) is huge. To coordinate
this we aim to arrange practical courses, e.g. 3-day Core Module and
1-day or 2-day Biostatistics Module:

The basic qPCR Core Module contains three workshop days:
First workshop day will be directed to people planning or considering
using qPCR in their research and also users not yet fully familiar will
quantitative PCR. Second day targets more advanced users and people
concentrating on different quantification strategies. The third day
focuses on aspects in sample preparation and reverse transcription. The
additional qPCR Biostatistics Module explains statistics applicable to
qPCR and teaches how to use statistics to interpret qPCR gene
expression data, and classify samples based on qPCR expression
Courses contain both, theoretical seminars and practical hands-on
training with experienced supervision. Practical training will be
performed on three different real-time PCR cyclers, using multiple
detection chemistries. The Biostatistics Module is further based on
computer-based demonstrations. Please bring your own Laptop !
qPCR courses are held in regularly in Göteborg, Sweden and in
Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany (near Munich, very close to the Munich
Airport - MUC). Depending on the occasion different prices may apply.
Also different course modules are available on the different occasions.
Further customized workshops and specialized trainings will be held as
well across Europe and world-wide. TATAA Biocenter Germany courses are
held in cooperation with the Institute of Physiology, located at the
Technical University of Munich, in Freising-Weihenstephan.
