Webinar series: Cancer Research Week @ QIAGEN!

Cancer research has come a long way, and is accelerating even faster in the age of next-generation sequencing (NGS). Identifying mutations, discovering biomarkers, and profiling DNA and RNA from single cells has given us more specific and personalized insights than ever, and advances in NGS are largely to thank for these opportunities. This September, we’re offering a… Read article →

Getting Multiplex PCR gene expression profiling working for you

Multiplex PCR is an extremely enabling molecular biology technique, allowing the amplification of multiple targets in a single PCR experiment. There are a broad range of research applications for multiplex PCR, including pathogen identification, high-throughput SNP genotyping, gene expression profiling, template quantitation, RNA detection and even forensic studies. Gene expression profiling of CTCs  The presence… Read article →

Webinars on-demand: Digital NGS for RNA-seq, miRNA-seq and DNA-seq!

Digital NGS using Unique Molecular Indices (UMIs) is a game-changer in RNA-seq, miRNA-seq and DNA-seq, enabling accurate quantification by overcoming PCR bias. In May, we presented the details of this technology for gene expression, microRNA analysis and mutation detection as part of our NGS Week webinar series, and again in July as part of the Summer of… Read article →
