Genomics & Bioinformatics Core Facility Seminar Series: Cristian Koepfli

-

Location: 115B Galvin Life Science Center

Please join us for an informative seminar next Thursday (12/12) on the usage of droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) in research presented by Cristian Koepfli, Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences. 

Quantification of cells or microbes by quantitative (qPCR) and of gene expression by reverse-transcriptase qPCR (RT-qPCR) is common practice in molecular labs. However, qPCR has several limitations, including the need for an external standard curve for absolute quantification, hampering direct comparisons between different studies, and pronounced technical variation at low template densities. Droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) offers an alternative method for quantification without the need for a standard curve and greatly reducing technical variability. ddPCR has become a gold standard in nucleic acid quantification, studies on copy number variation, and other applications.

BGSO Wellness Workshop: Setting Your Compass

-

Location: 115B Galvin Life Science Center

Who and what is important to you? Who do you want to be? How much are these present and guiding your life? In Setting Your Compass, participants will learn how meaning and purpose impact their well-being, how awareness of personal values increases happiness and reduces stress and how reorienting their priorities can re-energize their lives. Dr. Megan Brown will take participants on an experiential journey to reconnect with their values, learn the most effective psychological intervention for promoting resilience, and practice a technique that cultivates a mindful and values-centered life. This event is hosted by the Biology Graduate Student Organization and the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being. Coffee and snacks will be provided!…
