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.

Smoothing the Transition to MPS for Forensic Laboratories

Genetic Identity

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Dr. Peter de Knijff

Forensic laboratories have much to consider before adopting massively parallel sequencing (MPS). In this webinar, Dr. Peter de Knijff will discuss considerations around implementation of MPS in the forensic laboratory, including advantages and disadvantages, workflow and data analysis, and results from his work using a prototype of the PowerSeq™ 46GY System.

ccfDNA Workflows: Honing in on the Target

Genomics

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Douglas Horejsh, Ph.D.

The low concentration and highly fragmented nature of circulating cell-free DNA (ccfDNA), coupled with a low frequency of biomarkers of interest, present many challenges for ccfDNA purification and monitoring. In part 2 of 3 ccfDNA webinars, we will discuss techniques for maximizing results through proper sample handling, purification, quantitation, QC, and downstream processing of isolated cell-free DNA.

ccfDNA In the Lab: Optimizing Purification for Sequencing

Genomics

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Margaret L Gulley, MD

Circulating cell-free DNA can be used to monitor tumor burden and monitor disease progress. In part 3 of 3 ccfDNA webinars, Dr. Gulley discusses variables important to isolating high-quality ccfDNA from plasma samples including anticoagulant, plasma volume and storage length and conditions.

ccfDNA 101: Emerging Trends in Oncology Research

Genomics

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Douglas White

Research in circulating cell-free DNA (ccfDNA) has become a key area of interest in the study of normal and disease states. In this first of three ccfDNA webinars, we discuss the history and basics of ccfDNA – what is it, how do laboratories commonly extract ccfDNA, and what are typical applications for ccfDNA?

From Training to Trial: A Reflection on Nearly Three Years Probabilistic Genotyping

Genetic Identity

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Alicia Cadenas and Rachel Oefelein

Forensic science laboratories are facing unprecedented change as more labs are analyzing and reporting DNA mixtures as a likelihood ratio (LR) using probabilistic genotyping software. This webinar covers the progress of probabilistic genotyping from training and implementation to casework results and courtroom experiences.

NanoBRET: A Quantitative Technique to Measure Kinase Target Engagement in Live Cells

Cell-Based Assays

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Matthew Robers, MS

Although a number of extracellular techniques exist to quantitatively measure kinase-ligand binding or inhibition, until now there was no means by which to quantitate target occupancy or drug affinity in live cells. In this webinar we report the use of an energy transfer technique (NanoBRET) in the first quantitative approach to profiling kinase occupancy of a test compound inside live cells.

When Medical Conditions Muddle Forensic Casework

Genetic Identity

Friday, December 08, 2017

Dr. Ashley Anderson

While no case is without its challenges, medical conditions such as chimerism and genetic outliers (e.g., identical twins) add wrinkles to the analysis and interpretation of the DNA profiles obtained in the case. Medical procedures such as bone marrow transplants can also confuse the results, affecting the legal, social and ethical deliberations of the case. In this webinar, Dr. Anderson will review the interpretation and reporting difficulties experienced when medical conditions have the potential to influence forensic casework results.

Metagenomic Mapping of Medical, Urban and Space Environments

MDx

Tuesday, December 05, 2017

Christopher Mason, PhD

Many new methods in genomics enable an integrative, cross-kingdom view of patients (precision metagenomics) and their environment, including metagenome profiles of the world’s cities (MetaSUB.org) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) markers. In this webinar, technologies that can sequence, quantify, and map nucleic acids will be covered, for Earth and beyond, focusing on methods from Promega that enable these projects and missions.
