November webinar series feature: Single-cell analysis

Whether you’re a novice or an experienced researcher, our November webinar series on single-cell analysis will offer you a multitude of valuable insights. Cell heterogeneity plays a central role both in normal development and in disease. Single-cell sequencing has become a powerful tool to profile this cell-to-cell variability on a genomic scale. While single-cell genomic… Read article →

Extending miRQC – delving deeper into miRNA platform performance

Recently, QIAGEN set out to investigate the performance of its market-leading miRNA testing platform. A key study released in 2014, the microRNA Quality Control Assessment (miRQC), examined the performance of a number of miRNA quantification systems, including the QIAGEN miScript System. In that study, QIAGEN performed quite well, showing high levels of reproducibility, accuracy and… Read article →

A webinar with Dr. Jo Vandesompele – Expanding the dynamic range of microRNA expression

In 2014, an ambitious microRNA technology study was published in Nature Methods. This study evaluated the existing microRNA platforms on the market for their technical performance. The authors, including first author Pieter Mestdagh and corresponding author Jo Vandesompele of Ghent University and Biogazelle, found small differences between the qPCR technologies, but concluded that from this purely technical perspective, there was no… Read article →

It’s hard to overstate the importance of amplification technology in molecular biology. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) amplifies sections of messenger RNA so they can be quantified – we’d have a much dimmer view of the transcriptome without it. Whole-genome amplification helps us analyze genes in single or limited cells, opening up a whole new… Read article →
