Order DVD DVD CoverAbout the Conference:
Biology is not static – neither are the tools and technologies that support genomic discovery for basic and pharmaceutical research. Gene expression profiling is preferred, providing common language for finding relationships between health and disease; genetic changes as a result of therapy; markers for toxicology and drug safety; and even potentially leading to personalized medicine. Additionally, it may be possible to capture these revealing expression profiles with as few as a thousand transcripts. Learn from seasoned and savvy researchers who share their experiences using the latest genomic technologies for piecing together the biological puzzle of health and disease at Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fifth Annual Advances in Gene Expression Profiling: Technologies. . . Transcripts . . . Therapies.

Session Topics Include:

  • Profiling Gene Expression from Tissue
  • FFPE Clinical Samples
  • Unfixed Frozen Tissue Samples
  • Purification of Genomic DNA from Blood
  • Technologies. . .Transcripts. . .Therapies
  • Non-Coding RNA’s
  • Toxic Profiles of Compounds
  • Bacterial Pathogen Infection
  • Gene Knockdown Models
