Real-time PCR is a common and easy-to-adopt technology. By keeping a few simple steps in mind as you design and run your experiments you can ensure high-quality, reproducible data.
Disease-associated mutations can be prognostic of outcome and inform treatment choices. However, traditional tissue biopsies limit the ability to implement personalized treatments. Read about how multiplex digital PCR can enable the tracking of treatment efficacy using liquid biopsies.
Gene augmentation and antisense therapies treat disease by providing a functional copy of faulty gene or repressing its expression. Find out how gene editing tools, like CRISPR, promise a more permanent cure.
In this fourth and final part of the series on assessing the health of your cells, we review the different stages of necroptosis, see how it differs from apoptosis, and learn about the various methods of assessing cellular necroptosis.
See how one study used Bio-Rad’s Bio-Plex Pro Human Cytokine 27-Plex Assay to investigate immune responses to an anti-viral compound in an effort to better understand vaccine efficacy.
