Do not miss – presentation by Dr. Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter

Taking Expression Profiling to New Levels

Mikael Kubista

qPCR is developing into the most powerful platform to profile samples extracting the biologically relevant information. Major breakthroughs in recent years include the development of highly accurate methods for the profiling of various biomolecules including mRNA, microRNA, lncRNA and protein, combined with robust preamplification methods that allow the profiling of large number of markers starting with minute sample amounts, including single cells.

In my talk I will present some of the most recent tools and illustrate the approaches by presenting the first single cell multiway study, where response to brain trauma in mice is studied over time using single cell expression profiling, the first single cell multianalyte profiling study, where DNA, mRNA, microRNA, lncRNA and protein are measured in the same cell, and qPCR tomography to measure intracellular mRNA gradients that lead to asymmetric cell division.
