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.

Success or failure in DNA/RNA analysis applications often comes down to whether or not the appropriate amount of input nucleic acid is used, but nucleic acid quantitation methods reveal different information about a sample. This webinar will review absorbance, fluorescent nucleic acid-binding dyes and qPCR quantitation methods and present the advantages and disadvantages of each method. With this information, you'll be able to choose the appropriate quantitation method based on your sample type and downstream application.

Modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code (Epigenetics) is an interesting way that organisms develop a phenotype. Altered expression of the key proteins can have deleterious effects. Researchers are actively engaged in identifying modulators of epigenetic proteins and learning how these proteins interact with their targets. Learn more as we present data on the use of a novel BRET assay for such studies.

Mr. Jim Thomson
The PowerPlex® Y23 System is a 23-loci, 5-color Y-STR multiplex designed for genotyping forensic casework samples, database samples and paternity samples.
In this webinar, Jim Thomson from LGC Group described the use of PowerPlex® Y23 System on difficult sexual offense cases, particularly those in which no sperm was identified. He shared success rates on different categories derived from a case study carried out on samples provided by nominated participating UK police forces.
