February 1, 2007 - February 7, 2007
This week's podcast features an interview with Gregory L. Shipley, Ph.D., an expert on qPCR. Dr. Shipley, who directs the Quantitative Core Genomics Core Laboratory at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, lectures widely on qPCR design and applications. During the podcast, Dr. Shipley discusses probe-based qPCR and explains how it has transformed the use of quantitative biological assays. He also talks about the advantages and disadvantages of probe-based assays versus dye-and primer-based assays. He outlines the key steps in designing probe-based assays and details the main application areas for probe-based qPCR.
