Promega Webinars

NA_webinarsConcept-image
Welcome to the Promega Webinar Series, an ongoing communication designed to keep you informed. Learn about basic concepts, tips and techniques to help your research, or understand how products were designed and how to implement in your lab. Most presentations are given by Promega scientists and you will have an opportunity to interact with our Technical Service Scientist directly during live events via chat. The webinars are free though we do ask that you register for the events. Registration allows us to send you the URL for the webinar.

MicroRNA Analysis Paired with Novel Cell Health Assays: A Complete Workflow

Genomics

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Brad Hook, PhD

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small-noncoding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally. Amplification and overexpression of individual oncomiRs (miRNAs associated with cancer) or genetic loss of tumor suppressor miRNAs are associated with human cancer and are sufficient to drive tumorigenesis in mouse models. A global decrease in miRNA levels has been observed in human cancers and linked to genetic and epigenetic alterations in components of the miRNA biogenesis machinery. Learn more about how to analyze miRNAs in human cancer cells as we present data on a two studies that use new novel assays to monitor cell health and purify total RNA (including miRNAs) from the same cells.

Factors to Consider for Designing and Optimizing Assays Applied to 3D Cultures

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Terry Riss, PhD

3D cell culture models present a challenge for using assay chemistries and imaging methods that were originally designed for measuring events from 2D monolayers of cells. In this webinar, we will present factors to consider when designing and optimizing assays applied to 3D cell culture models, case studies describing design of reagents to overcome the limitations inherent with detecting markers from large 3D culture models, and applications of novel real-time detection methods.

Optimizing and Qualifying Reporter Gene Bioassays for Immune Checkpoint Receptors

Drug Discovery

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Zhijie Jey Cheng, PhD

Reporter gene assays for functional screening and development of antibody drug candidates are gaining popularity due to the significant advantages they offer over traditional methods that rely on human primary immune cells. We will discuss development of a series of MoA-based reporter gene bioassays for therapeutic antibodies targeting co-inhibitory receptors, co-stimulatory receptors and combination bioassays that target immune checkpoint receptors.

Post-Translational Modification Enzymes: How to Interrogate Key Drug Targets

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Hicham Zegzouti, PhD

Post-translational modifications (PTMs), the addition of functional groups to proteins, play a significant role in regulating cellular biology. Examples include phosphorylation, a common mechanism in regulating enzymatic activity, and the addition of carbohydrates to many eukaryotic proteins, which promotes proper folding, improves stability and serves in regulatory functions. A key objective of research and drug discovery surrounding PTMs is to study the regulation of these enzymes and find specific modulators of their activity. Although mass spectrometry, eastern and western blotting detection technologies have been used traditionally, none are amenable to high throughput or as sensitive as bioluminescent detection of nucleotide-based substrates for such enzymes.

Massively Parallel Sequencing for Forensic DNA Analysis

Genetic Identity

Tuesday, December 08, 2015

Douglas R. Storts, Ph.D.

In this webinar, we presented data demonstrating performance of the PowerSeq™ Systems, and outline the strengths and limitations of massively parallel sequencing technologies for routine forensic analysis. The prototype PowerSeq™ Systems include primers and amplification master mix for sequencing autosomal short tandem repeats (STRs), Y-chromosome STRs, the mitochondrial DNA control region, and various combinations of the three on an Illumina MiSeq® System.

Successfully Overcoming the Challenges of Working with FFPE Samples

Genomics

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Trista Schagat, PhD

Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples are highly valuable, but difficult starting material for nucleic acid analysis. This webinar will discuss the different steps in molecular analysis using FFPE as a starting material and provide recommendations for optimizing each step from extraction through downstream applications.

Introduction to Real-Time PCR: Basic Principles and Chemistries

Genomics

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Leta Steffen, PhD

Real-time PCR (qPCR) is the workhorse of most gene expression analysis. This webinar will provide an overview of basic qPCR principles compared to traditional PCR and common terms used in assay design and analysis.

Monitoring Protein:Protein Interactions in Living Cells Using a Small, Bright and Reversible Complementation System

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Brock F. Binkowski, PhD.

This webinar will discuss NanoLuc® Binary Technology (NanoBiT™) for the study of intracellular protein interactions, which can be followed in real-time using a non-lytic assay protocol.
