Functional analysis of miRNAs

Understanding the function and targets of miRNA is important, but challenging research. Since one miRNA can potentially target several genes, finding and validating a specific miRNA-mRNA interaction often involves multiple molecular techniques. In this webinar we will highlight the use of miRNA mimics, inhibitors and target protectors to increase, decrease and adjust the cellular concentration of miRNA and disrupt specific miRNA-mRNA interactions. We will also present a ready-to-use screening tool for identifying miRNA targets in your samples. Lastly, we will show how miRNA expression data can be used to predict mRNA targets and how qPCR can be used to validate predicted interactions.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

Host–Pathogen Interactions: Molecular Basis and Host Defense Mechanisms

Host–pathogen interactions are strikingly complex during infection. This webinar provides an overview of the molecular basis of these intricate interactions; the impact of microbiota on innate and adaptive immunity, metabolism, and insulin resistance; and host defense mechanisms, including newly reported inflammasome-mediated responses and miRNA-mediated responses. Various research tools will be introduced to simplify and streamline each step of studying the host response, enabling analysis of gene expression and regulation, epigenetic modification, genotyping, and signal transduction pathway activation.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

Accelerate your discovery with QIAGEN service solutions for biomarker research

Development of preclinical biomarkers can have several pitfalls, often requiring a large investment in instruments to process samples, time to develop assays, and specialties in data analysis and biomarker algorithm design. QIAGEN’s life sciences service core can provide researchers with the tools, knowledge and specialties to help develop the next generation of biomarkers for cancer, toxicology and inflammation research. This seminar will highlight QIAGEN’s service capabilities in sample isolation, microarray and NGS-sequencing, qPCR panel, and custom assay development and bioinformatics as we look at the identification of potential biomarkers and gene signatures. We will discuss the applications of QIAGEN Service Core in microRNA discovery for toxicology markers in serum and plasma and in identification of RNA signatures for tumor stratification. Join us and learn how you can accelerate your research with QIAGEN service solutions.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

PAXgene Tissue – New workflows and applications

The PAXgene Tissue product line is a formaldehyde-free solution for collection, stabilization and purification of tissue specimens for simultaneous preservation of biomolecules and histomorphology. This webinar will introduce a complete portfolio that will focus on new workflows and applications. In particular, we will present the generation of fixed and cryo-embedded (PFCE) tissue blocks using the PAXgene Tissue product line, along with a comparison of histological features and purification of biomolecules (DNA, RNA, miRNA, proteins). Also, Laser-Microdissection (LMD) of PAXgene Tissue fixed and stabilized samples for isolation of DNA and RNA will be addressed as a new application for PAXgene Tissue. These new workflows and protocols complete PreAnalytiX’s and QIAGEN’s unique solutions for formaldehyde-free processing and stabilization of tissue specimens.

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.

Harnessing the high value of circulating tumor cells with liquid biopsy

"Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) is an emerging source used molecular cancer diagnostics. Through expression profiling of CTCs, it allows a deeper understanding about which metabolic pathways enable tumor cells to survive in the circulation, how they become resistant to a drug regimen, how they transform and adapt and, finally, which cellular markers should targeted for future therapies. This webinar will introduce the AdnaTest CTC detection platform which has been proven in several clinical trials to provide prognostic and predictive information in breast, ovarian and prostate cancer. The platform by itself is still open for research and allows access to any potential target of interest. Join us to learn more about this novel platform, its technology and applications in liquid biopsy. "

Duration: 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.
