speaker: Dr. J. Huggett, LGC and UCL, UK
Huggett read genetics in Liverpool University followed by a PhD in
Cardiff University where he studied the transcription in bone disease.
Particularly interested in the application of advanced molecular
methods to clinical scenarios he moved to UCL in 2002 to take up a
senior research fellow position with Professor Alimuddin Zumla. Here he
investigated diagnostic approaches to infectious diseases in developing
world settings before moving to LGC in 2009, while retaining an
honorary lectureship at UCL, which he still holds. At LGC, which is the
UK’s designated national measurement institute role for chemical and
bio-analytical measurement, he has led a large number of molecular
diagnostics, genomics and nucleic acid research projects. This work
focuses on high accuracy measurement as well as strengthening the
traceability of measurements that underpin legislation, regulation and
standardisation. In 2016 Dr Huggett joined the University of Surrey as
a Senior Lecturer and holds a joint appointment with LGC.

Learn how to extract and
analyze miRNA with appropriate techniques!
Target audience: Researchers interested in analyzing
Entrance qualifications: Basic knowledge about microRNA and
course (2 days miRNA analysis) introduces miRNA including its variant
forms. Methods to extract and purify microRNA and prepare it for
analysis including quality control. Methods for microRNA expression
analysis are presented and compared, to learn how to too choose the
best method for each study. Analysis of microRNA data is also discussed
including challenging normalization.

six webinar series on PCR will be based on MIQE guidelines. MIQE,
Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative-Real Time PCR,
helps scientists to design and report reliable and reproducible qPCR
results. They help others to understand and replicate already conducted
experiments. In this webinar series we will discuss step by step
critical points which need to be taken into consideration in order to
acquire reliable data.
Topics will include:
