Too Many Questions, Too Little Sample: Developing a Real-Time PCR Workflow for Monitoring Gene Expression in Limited Samples

Traditional real-time PCR workflows often limit the number of genes that can be studied, especially when sample amounts are small. A new workflow now allows Mark Kibschull of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Toronto to track the expression of hundreds of genes using a fraction of the starting material required by traditional methods.
