Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

  • If you work with gene expression data, you should attend.
  • Often researchers run the tests and collect data, then are not sure of the best way to test the data for differences and interactions between groups, targets and references, and/or calibrator and test samples.
  • Also, there is often a need to control for different researchers or samples in a statistical analysis. Learn how to add and interpret additional factors you may need into your statistical model design.
  • Concrete information on sample size, data structure, and interpretation of analysis findings will be presented in examples and Elaine will make some time at the end of the presentation to answer specific questions from the audience.
  • Some knowledge of correlation and/or simple linear regression is desired.
  • Real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) includes a set of computations to find counts and fold-differences in gene expression data. qPCR is thus an important aspect in many biomedical fields, when a researcher wants to know the answers to the questions of (1) How many copies in the expression? (absolute quantification) or (2) What is the fold-difference between gene expressions (relative quantification).
  • The literature on statistical testing of qPCR data is a bit ambiguous, and there are numerous tests that can be used depending on the question you are asking.

In this webinar, Elaine Eisenbeisz will show you how to use data to estimate a standard curve, how to perform computations for absolute and relative quantification. Also, you will learn a few decision-making criteria and statistical tests that can be used with qPCR data.
