Abstract: Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) is a technique that is now commonly employed in almost all molecular biology laboratories to elucidate variation in gene expression.
But with the widespread use of such a wonderful and sensitive technology comes differences in how to obtain valuable and reportable results. The lack of quality control for publishing qPCR data is still lacking. To overcome this increasing problem of lack of consistency in publications, a panel of real-time PCR experts published a set of guidelines containing what they consider the minimal information required when reporting qPCR results. The Real-time PCR Research and Diagnostic Core Facility at UC Davis fully abides with the proposed MIQE guidelines, so this presentation presents an expanded explanation of the guideline items with commentary, based on our experience, on how those requirements might be met prior to publication.

Bio: Dr. Emir Hodzic received his D.V.M. and PhD. from the School of Veterinaty Medicine at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. His postdoctoral training was with the Section of Comparative Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT where he studied animal models of Lyme disease and human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis. Dr. Hodzic is currently a director of the Real-time PCR Research and Diagnostic Core Facility as well as a project scientist for the Center for Comparative Medicine at UC Davis.
