Understanding Gene Expression Using a Pathway Approach: Complete PCR Array Systems for Gene & MicroRNA Expression and DNA Methylation Status Analysis

Scientists at SABiosciences, now A QIAGEN Company, have developed over 150 different pre-validated pathway-focused PCR Array panels to study different metabolic or cellular signaling pathways and diseases, e.g. in cancer, immunology,
stem cell and toxicology research.

In this seminar, we will focus on the principles of this technology using application examples and highlight the analysis of gene and miRNA expression analysis and DNA methylation status using the RT2 Proifler, RT2 miRNA, and EpiTect DNA Methylation PCR Arrays. From sample preparation through data analysis, the PCR Array system offers scientists a complete experimental workflow for pathway focused analysis. Find out how these PCR assay panels can create significant benefits for researchers in terms of convenience, cost-efficiency, and quality of results.

Speaker background:
Andrew is the Regional Application Scientist for QIAGEN in Southeast Asia. He specializes in the sales consultation of SABiosciences products through the technical and application aspects of the PCR arrays and other pathway-focused products. Prior to joining QIAGEN, Andrew has had several years of research experience especially in the field of Molecular Virology and this has kept him up to date on the latest technologies and application knowledge of molecular techniques employed in the field of research. Successful research work have also lead to the acceptance of the research findings in two separate publications relating to viral host interaction as well as detection of viral infection and treatment.
He graduated from the Department of Microbiology, Yong Loon Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore with a Masters of Science.

Refreshment will be served. Lucky draw gifts are also provided.
