State-of-the-art normalization of RT-qPCR data

Setting up a qPCR experiment is so simple that it actually becomes dangerous. Without appropriate controls and data normalization, results can be misleading at best.

During this webinar, Dr Vandesompele addresses selection and validation of suitable reference genes as well as the use of the global mean normalization method to obtain accurate data. He also describes tools for data generation and analysis.
