Webinar takeaways – “Accurate DNA Methylation Analysis by Successful Bisulfite Conversion”

DNA methylation is widely recognized as a major player regulating normal gene expression and facilitating chromatin organization within cells. Research into abnormal DNA methylation that leads to human diseases like cancer could therefore provide valuable insights for disease development diagnosis and potential therapies. DNA is made up of 4 nucleotides – cytosine, guanine, thymine and… Read article →

NGS basics: Quality metrics for NGS library preparation

NGS basics: Quality metrics for NGS library preparation The aim of every NGS library prep workflow is to convert input molecules of DNA or cDNA by the ligation of vendor-specific adapters into a format that can be sequenced with an NGS platform. The concept does appear very straightforward, but achieving this goal is more complex… Read article →

Back to the future – 30 years of plasmid purification

What would happen if we traveled 30 years back in a QIAGEN time machine? In 1986, it all started with the first QIAGEN kit for plasmid purification, giving scientists all over the world a revolutionary alternative to anion-exchange and phenol chloroform extraction. But back then, would we have believed that plasmid purification kits would become… Read article →
