PCR helps researchers view cellular functions

Researchers at the US Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a new and very sensitive technique to detect the glycans (sugars) in living organisms. Dubbed glyco-qPCR, this uses quantitative PCR (qPCR; real-time PCR) techniques. The genome (the whole of a cell, [...]

Applications in PCR: PCR in gene expression analysis

Nearly all of the cells in an organism carry the same genetic material and so the same collection of genes, but different cells have different roles and so have different profiles of genes active at any one time. Gene expression [...]
