Educational Webinar: High-Resolution Melt Analysis

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 08-02-2010

High-resolution melt (HRM) analysis is rapidly gaining in popularity as a cost-effective and faster alternative to traditional post-PCR genotyping methods such as single-stranded conformation polymorphism, denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography, and restriction fragment length polymorphism.

In this webinar you will gain an overview of the fundamentals of HRM and learn techniques for success through appropriate experimental design, assay optimization, and data analysis. You will also learn about specific applications from scientists using HRM technology for basic microbiological genotyping research of pathogens as well as in clinical studies, detecting receptor gene mutants linked to cancer and identifying epigenetic differences in double-stranded DNA.

The webinar will take place Wednesday August 11 at 1pm EST.
