Analyzing Quantitative PCR Data
 
03:25
Relative and absolute methods of qPCR analysis. Created for an assignment for BIOC3001: Molecular Biology at the University of Western Australia. ****SCRIPT**** [I know it's a bit fast] qPCR or quantitative real-time PCR… ….is simply classic PCR monitored using fluorescent dyes or probes. qPCR is accurate, reliable and extremely sensitive, it can even detect a SINGLE copy of a specific transcript. qPCR is commonly coupled to reverse transcription to measure gene expression. No wonder it is so important for molecular diagnostics, life sciences, agriculture, and medicine. Firstly, let's go over the NUTS and BOLTS of qPCR. For this you use a fluorescent dye which binds to the DNA. As qPCR progresses, the fluorescent signal increases. Ideally the signal should double with every cycle, which is then plotted. Because there are few template strands to start with, initially there’s a faint signal. Eventually, usually after 15 cycles, the signal rises above the background noise and can be detected. We call this the THRESHOLD CYCLE, Ct, the point from which all quantitative data analysis begins. But how do you analyse qPCR data? You can either use an absolute quantification method, with a standard curve, OR a relative method, using one or more reference genes to standardize and compare the differences in Ct values between two treatments. The absolute standard curve method determines ORIGINAL DNA concentration by comparing the Ct value of the sample of interest with a standard curve. To create the standard curve, you need to make DNA samples of different KNOWN concentrations. After doing PCR on these, you will see different PCR plots for each standard ….. and unsurprisingly they have different Ct values. The GREATER the concentration of the original DNA sample, the SMALLER the Ct value. So if you plot ORIGINAL DNA concentration against the Ct values. You will have a standard curve like this….. Now let’s say the PCR plot of your unknown DNA sample is somewhere here….. ...which corresponds to this Ct value on the standard curve here…. Using the standard curve you can figure out the log concentration of your DNA sample to be x. As this is in log scale, you can simply calculate your sample DNA concentration to be 10 to the power of x. Absolute analysis is suitable when you want to determine the ACTUAL transcript copy number, that is the level of gene expression. On the other hand, Relative quantification is used when you want to COMPARE the difference in gene expression BETWEEN two treatments, for example light or dark treated Arabadopsis thaliana. This is done using one or more reference genes, such as actin, which are expressed at the SAME level for both treatments. You then perform qPCR on both your samples and the reference genes, find out the DIFFERENCE between the two Cts values, delta Ct, in EACH treatment. Now the RATIO of the two delta Cts …[pause a bit] . tells you how much gene expression has changed. For instance, in the dark treatment, the Ct value of your reference gene is at THIS level, the Ct value of your target gene is THIS Level. So you have this delta Ct which is the difference in Cts in the first treatment. in the dark treatment, the Ct value of your reference gene is STILL at THIS level, but the Ct value of your target gene may become only this much. So the ratio of the two Ct values is.. delta Ct(dark treatment) divided by delta Ct(light treament) equals one third ….showing the delta Ct has DECREASED by a factor of 3, which means that gene expression of the target gene is GREATER in the dark treated sample. This is how relative quantification using a reference gene helps detect change in the expression of your target gene. In conclusion, there are two ways to quantify transcripts using qPCR: absolute quantification using a standard curve, and relative quantification using a reference gene. The method used depends on whether you want to determine the ACTUAL number of transcripts or the RELATIVE change in gene expression.

This pcr reaction lecture explains about real time pcr procedure. It explains the realtime pcr mechanism and uses in molecular diagnosis. Web-http://shomusbiology.com/ Download the study materials here- http://shomusbiology.weebly.com/bio-materials.html A quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), also called real-time polymerase chain reaction, is a laboratory technique of molecular biology based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which is used to amplify and simultaneously quantify a targeted DNA molecule. For one or more specific sequences in a DNA sample, quantitative PCR enables both detection and quantification. The quantity can be either an absolute number of copies or a relative amount when normalized to DNA input or additional normalizing genes. The procedure follows the general principle of polymerase chain reaction; its key feature is that the amplified DNA is detected as the reaction progresses in "real time". This is a new approach compared to standard PCR, where the product of the reaction is detected at its end. Two common methods for the detection of products in quantitative PCR are: (1) non-specific fluorescent dyes that intercalate with any double-stranded DNA, and (2) sequence-specific DNA probes consisting of oligonucleotides that are labelled with a fluorescent reporter which permits detection only after hybridization of the probe with its complementary sequence to quantify messenger RNA (mRNA) and non-coding RNA in cells or tissues. qPCR is the abbreviation used for quantitative PCR (real-time PCR).[1] Real-time reverse-transcription PCR is often denoted as: qRT-PCR[2][3][4] The acronym "RT-PCR" commonly denotes reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and not real-time PCR, but not all authors adhere to this convention.

Baselines in Real-Time PCR -- Ask TaqMan®: Ep. 5
 
04:10
Submit your Real-Time PCR questions and watch the rest of our videos at http://ow.ly/bQh0l. Life Technologies Sr. Field Application Specialist Doug Rains helps with the understanding of baselines in Real-Time PCR. We're looking at a fairly standard real-time amplification plot. We have some nice curves, each of which has the familiar geometric phase, linear phase, and plateau phase. So far, so good. But what's all this . . . junk in the early cycles? Well, friends, if you said "junk," you were right. That's right, I said it -- junk, trash, waste, detritus, garbage, otherwise known as noise. It's the stuff we see before our actual signal from amplification gets high enough to overcome that noise. And, as the rather impolite adjectives I used a second ago would suggest, it's completely useless to us. This noise does have an effect on our curves. Our job is to minimize that effect by effectively subtracting out the noise. We do that by establishing what's known as a baseline -- a cycle-to-cycle range over which only noise can be seen, prior to the appearance of curves. Once established, the software will effectively subtract out the noise on a well-by-well basis, greatly improving the quality of our data. Let's switch the Y-axis to linear scale for a moment to illustrate the effect of baseline subtraction. Here's our data prior to baselining. Note how every sample begins from a slightly different spot on the Y-axis, causing our geometric phase data— this curvy part over here when we're in a linear scale— to look horrible. But once we subtract noise, every sample begins from the same point 0. And as a result, the data clean up nicely. The value we get after normalizing for background noise is something called delta-Rn. If you ever look closely at a log-scale amplification curve— the one we're used to seeing— you'll notice that delta-Rn is what's graphed on the Y-axis. But before you go, just note that there are two ways to set baselines in Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR software: manually, and automatically. If you do it the manual way, you set the baseline range under Analysis Settings. You either set it for a single assay, in which case all wells for that assay get the same subtraction . . . or you can go under Advanced Settings and set wells individually. Better yet, just use the default setting of Auto Baselining. With this selected, the software figures out how much noise needs to be subtracted from each well individually, and, as such, generally produces the best results. So why have a manual feature? Well, Auto does fail on occasion, especially with some SYBR® Assays and non-standard chemistries. You'll know auto has malfunctioned by the shapes of your curves. If they look more S-shaped than they should, it could be that auto has misapplied the baseline and set the End cycle too low. As a result, not enough noise is being subtracted, and the curves take on a strange shape. To fix the problem, switch over to manual mode for that assay and raise the End cycle until the curves take on a regular shape.

Using Standard Curve to Estimate DNA Quantity - Forensic Focus #4
 
03:43
Submit your questions at http://www.thermofisher.com/forensicfocus Everyone wants to know how much DNA is in their extract, but then they ask: how can I tell if my estimate is accurate? The standard curve holds the answers. A standard curve is a tool that allows us to estimate the DNA concentration of unknown samples by comparing them to standards with known DNA concentrations. In this example, the standards consist of a 10-fold dilution series ranging from 50 ng/ul down to 5 pg/ul. During each PCR cycle, the amount of fluorescent signal for each standard in the dilution seies is measured. When the fluorescent signal crosses the detection threshold the cycle number is recorded as a Ct value, or threshold cycle value. The Ct value is what ultimately is used to create the standard curve. The Ct values are inversely proportional to the concentration of DNA in the standards. The high-concentration, 50 ng/ul standard will cross the detection threshold first, generating a “low” Ct. The low-concentration, 5 pg/ul standard will take many more cycles to cross the same threshold - and therefore the Ct will be higher. The Ct values for each dilution of the standard curve are plotted on a graph, and the software generates a regression line that fits the data. Because the standards are 10-fold dilutions, we expect the change in Ct from one standard to the next to be uniform. An uneven distribution of Ct values might indicate that the dilution series was not accurately pipetted. Let’s take a look at the standard curve for a specific DNA target, the small autosomal target. The X axis is the log of the known standard concentrations. The Y axis is the Ct value of each standard. Now, Do you see the quality metrics at the bottom of the screen? Let’s review Slope, Y intercept, and R2.? The slope measures the efficiency of the PCR reaction. In a perfect world, a slope of -3.3 indicates that the PCR reaction is 100% efficient; the target DNA is doubled each cycle. Two copies become four; four become eight; and so on. The Y intercept is the expected Ct value for a 1ng/ul sample. The R2 value measures how well the regression line fits the data points. A line that fits the data points perfectly has an R2 of 1. If your data points are scattered, the R2 value for the line will be lower. The Ct values of your standards affect the slope, the Y intercept, and the R2 value. It is very important to prepare the standard dilution series carefully to ensure consistent and accurate results! Running the standards in duplicate can help ensure you have a high quality standard curve. Once your standard curve passes the metrics test, it can be used to evaluate an unknown sample! The Ct value of the unknown sample is measured, and compared to the standard curve to estimate the DNA concentration of the unknown sample. Couldn’t be simpler! That’s it for today.

Finding Multiple Melt-Curve Peaks When Using SYBR® Green in Real-Time PCR  -- Ask TaqMan®: Ep. 8
 
03:29
Submit your Real-Time PCR questions and watch the rest of our videos at http://ow.ly/bQh0l. Life Technologies Sr. Field Application Specialist Doug Rains helps with the understanding the causes of multiple peaks in a melt curve when using SYBR® Green dye in Real-Time PCR. SYBR® Green I chemistry is a free-floating dye. Here's how it works. When SYBR® Green dye is just swimming around in the tube, it doesn't give off much fluorescence -- even when we zap it with the light source on a real-time PCR machine. But SYBR® Green dye really likes to bind to double-stranded DNA. And, when it does, and you hit it with light, the dye gets excited and fluoresces. In theory, the basic idea, then, is this: as PCR creates more and more product, the signal of SYBR® Green dye should go up proportionally. In practice, this doesn't always happen. That's because SYBR® Green dye binds to any double-stranded DNA. Meaning, every double-stranded molecule in the tube will bind SYBR® Green dye and add to the fluorescent signal. Because of this concern, users run melt curves after each experiment. They do this by slowly raising the block temperature from about 60 degrees Celsius up to 95 degrees Celsius and monitoring fluorescence. As you can see, signal drops slowly until at some point, it drops off suddenly to zero. Halfway down this drop-off is the presumed melting temperature of the product created during PCR. If you have the software do a little calculus for you, you get what's called the derivative view, which I find a little more helpful, since the drop-off gets converted into a peak. What you're hoping to see is one, clearly defined peak, which suggests— doesn't prove, mind you— but suggests that you got clean amplification of a single product. One thing you don't want to see is multiple peaks, as this suggests your amplification curves are a composite of more than one product. So what causes extraneous peaks? It really depends. It could be non-specific amplification or primer-dimer formation. In the first case, you'll need to redesign your primers to a more specific sequence. In the latter case, you may just need to lower the concentration of primer to discourage dimer formation, although a primer redesign may ultimately be necessary. The problem is, it's difficult to know exactly what's causing certain anomalies, so some users end up spending a lot of time repeating failed experiments under multiple new conditions or with multiple new primer sets. That's neither fun nor affordable. Still, SYBR® chemistry is perfectly valid for qPCR when all things go well. Users just need to take more care than users of TaqMan® chemistry do in designing their experiments, and take additional quality control steps when evaluating their data.
How to Analyze Real-time PCR Data -- Ask TaqMan® Ep. 16 by Life Technologies
 
03:52
Submit your real-time PCR questions at http://www.lifetechnologies.com/asktaqman In this video, Sr. Field Applications Specialist Doug Rains covers the various options that researchers have for performing final qPCR data calculations. Learn how to take advantage of Life Technologies' offerings of free external data analysis software, including DataAssist and ExpressionSuite. Welcome to AskTaqMan, where we answer your questions about real-time PCR. Here's an important question from Janaína at UFRGS in Brazil. She asks, "How do I analyze my Real-Time PCR data?" Well, there are in fact several options for analyzing data and generating final reports, depending on the particular application one is running. Let's address the most common qPCR experiment type: namely, gene expression. The first option is to have the instrument software perform calculations for you. In all of our most recent software versions, you have the option to set up new gene expression experiments by designating either comparative Ct or relative standard curve as your quantification method. You'll need to create at least 2 assay names -- one normalizer and one target -- and at least 2 sample names. You'll then assign these sample and assay names to the appropriate wells, making certain to identically label any wells representing pipetting replicates. If you're running the relative standard curve method, be sure to also label wells containing your dilution curve as standards, and to add standard amounts. There's a handy shortcut key that really helps set these up, by the way. Finally, tell the software which target on the plate is your normalizer gene and which sample you want to choose as the reference sample. - Most people choose the "untreated" sample, by the way. At the end of the run, simply go to either the Results or the Analysis tab, depending on your version, and to gene expression. If you labelled everything correctly, final fold change data will be generated for you at the end of the run and presented both in graphical and in tabular form. In the case of the latter, there's a column labelled RQ, or relative quantification, which is exactly the same as fold change. The instrument software has so many features for looking at your gene expression data that we just won't be able to go into too much detail in this video. So I suggest having a look at a copy of the Relative Quantification Getting Started Guide. It's available as a hard copy, as well as electronically online. And if you click on your software's Help menu, you'll even find a version right at your fingertips. But what about other options? In fact, Life Technologies offers two other exceptional tools for calculating gene expression data. Both are fre-standing packages that can be downloaded and used at no charge from the Life Technoligies website. Both DataAssist and Expression Suite offer intuitive workspaces and plenty of data crunching capabilities. Both can do multi-plate studies, calculate biological replicate fold change data, and present results in a variety of forms, including heat maps, volcano and scatter plots, and more. If you'd like to learn more about either of these packages, there are free video tutorials available on the web. Just go to learn.lifetechnologies.com, click on Gene Expression, and twirl down to the section on Web-Based training.

Digital PCR vs. Real-time PCR - Ask TaqMan #30
 
04:18
Ask your question at https://www.thermofisher.com/ask As a researcher, you’ve been given many choices in terms of tools and techniques. And for some who are intimately familiar with real-time PCR, you are probably hearing about digital PCR and its emerging applications. So the question is, when do you use one or the other or both. Real-time PCR – also called quantitative polymerase chain reaction or qPCR – is one of the most powerful and sensitive gene analysis techniques and is used for a broad range of applications. Digital PCR is the next generation of PCR technology involving absolute quantitation of nucleic acid target sequences. As digital PCR gains clout among researchers, many interested scientists ask “When should I choose digital PCR over real-time PCR?” The overwhelming advantage of real-time PCR is that it is a broadly accepted technology with well-established protocols and data analysis techniques. Other advantages include • a wide dynamic range for detection • a low per-sample experiment cost. • high sample throughputs The major advantages of digital PCR include: • no reliance on standard curves and reference samples; • high tolerance to biological and sample prep inhibitors; • and improved performance for applications requiring higher sensitivity and precision You can continue using real-time PCR for routine quantification applications, and add digital PCR for applications requiring enhanced performance. Absolute quantitation using real-time PCR requires standard curves and reference samples, but digital PCR allows you to quantify samples without using a standard curve. In this example using real-time PCR, notice how many wells are required to generate the standard curve. This assumes you have appropriate reference standards for your sample of interest, which may not always be the case. Each standard also must be of known quantity, such as absolute quantitation of mRNA copy number. Generating such standards is a lot of work and the standards may deteriorate over time, thus changing the amount of nucleic acid present in your standards. In the case of digital PCR, your sample is partitioned into thousands of separate reaction vessels. Taking an end point PCR read for presence or absence of reactions allows for the absolute measurement of template copies per microliter. Digital PCR is also highly tolerant to PCR inhibitors by virtue of the massive partitioning we just discussed. These data illustrate how digital PCR is robust in the face of increasing inhibitor concentrations; whereas, the performance with real-time PCR dramatically drops off at high inhibitor concentrations. Digital PCR can also provide improved performance in cancer research, where rare mutations often need to be detected in a background of wild-type DNA. Digital PCR has the sensitivity to detect extremely rare target sequences. . So, in the end digital PCR can enhance your quantitative PCR results, enabling applications that benefit from higher sensitivity, precision, and absolute quantification. If you’ve got more qPCR or digital PCR questions, remember, just ask TaqMan. Submit your question at https://www.thermofisher.com/ask and subscribe to our channel to see more videos like this.

Fixing Software Setup Mistakes in Real-Time PCR (StepOnePlus™) -- Ask TaqMan®: Ep. 10
 
03:40
Submit your Real-Time PCR questions and watch the rest of our videos at http://ow.ly/bQh0l. Life Technologies Sr. Field Application Specialist Doug Rains offers advices for fixing common software set-up mistakes when performing Real-Time PCR. I'm showing you a completed run file. Let's say I made a lot more mistakes than you did while setting up my file: wrong sample names, wrong dyes, and, yes, even forgot to label some wells. As you can see, I'm in Analysis under the Experiment Menu. To fix things, I'm going to go up here and click Setup. In the Plate Setup window, you can see my list of targets and samples. If I originally entered information incorrectly, I can change it right here. Let's say it's something as simple as a sample name. I activate the offending box, type the new name, and hit Enter. I now go to my plate map, which I access by clicking this tab, and I find that the new sample name has been added to the appropriate wells automatically. Okay, let's go back to Define Targets and Samples. Now what if I assigned the wrong fluorescent label to one of my assays? This one says FAM, but it should say VIC. That mistake left unfixed will definitely cause some analysis issues. However, I can just use the Reporter pull-down menu and make the switch. When I now go back to Analysis and click the analyze button, my change gets applied. And of course, the data improve dramatically. How is this possible? It's possible because whenever the instrument takes readings, it does so through every filter set, regardless of your dye assignment. Thus, the raw data are always there in the file. Back to Setup, where we'll deal with the issue of missing well assignments. Row D is blank because somebody forgot to assign assays and samples. And so these wells yield no data. But if I simply make the assignments now like so then go back to Analysis and reanalyzed the data, curves for those wells will appear. So, what information can we change after the fact? Just about anything besides cycling conditions. That includes sample and Assay names, Tasks (such as which wells are standards), standard amounts, the passive reference dye, and plenty more. Not only that, every Life Technologies real-time PCR instrument gives you this leeway. So even if you're using an older instrument, that's okay. In fact, you can even change the experiment type on all of the newer Life Technologies platforms, So if you accidentally labeled your ddCt run as a standard curve experiment, you can change that.
Understanding Melt Curves for Improved SYBR® Green Assay Analysis and Troubleshooting
 
01:07:42
qPCR assays using intercalating dyes, such as SYBR® Green dye, are an economical and effective tool for measuring gene expression. To interpret intercalating dye assays, users need to know how to analyze melt curves, and understand the benefits and limitations of melt curve analysis. In this presentation, Nick Downey, PhD, covers melt curve basics and shares examples of multiple peaks due to suboptimal sample prep, primer dimers, and asymmetric GC content of amplicons. He demonstrates troubleshooting strategies. Experienced and novice users will benefit from an overview of uMelt software, developed by the Wittwer lab at the University of Utah, that can predict the melt profile of your assay before you run your experiment.

Real time PCR using taqman dye

For more information, log on to- http://shomusbiology.weebly.com/ Download the study materials here- http://shomusbiology.weebly.com/bio-materials.html A quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), also called real-time polymerase chain reaction, is a laboratory technique of molecular biology based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which is used to amplify and simultaneously quantify a targeted DNA molecule. For one or more specific sequences in a DNA sample, quantitative PCR enables both detection and quantification. The quantity can be either an absolute number of copies or a relative amount when normalized to DNA input or additional normalizing genes. The procedure follows the general principle of polymerase chain reaction; its key feature is that the amplified DNA is detected as the reaction progresses in "real time". This is a new approach compared to standard PCR, where the product of the reaction is detected at its end. Two common methods for the detection of products in quantitative PCR are: (1) non-specific fluorescent dyes that intercalate with any double-stranded DNA, and (2) sequence-specific DNA probes consisting of oligonucleotides that are labelled with a fluorescent reporter which permits detection only after hybridization of the probe with its complementary sequence to quantify messenger RNA (mRNA) and non-coding RNA in cells or tissues. qPCR is the abbreviation used for quantitative PCR (real-time PCR).[1] Real-time reverse-transcription PCR is often denoted as: qRT-PCR[2][3][4] The acronym "RT-PCR" commonly denotes reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and not real-time PCR, but not all authors adhere to this convention.[5] Source of the article published in description is Wikipedia.

Real-time PCR Applications -- Ask TaqMan® Ep. 17 by Life Technologies
 
03:47
Submit your real-time PCR questions at http://www.lifetechnologies.com/asktaqman In this video, Sr. Field Applications Specialist Doug Rains covers several possible applications that are possible on Life Technologies real-time PCR instruments. Learn about both quantitative and non-quantitative applications, including those that interrogate DNA, RNA and even protein. Finally, discover convenient options for acquiring high-quality TaqMan® assays for all of these experiment types. Bon giorno, e benvenuti a Ask TaqMan. I'd like to read a question I received recently from Giampiero at the University of Pisa. He asks, "What are the most common applications for real-time PCR?" Well, most notable on the list is looking at relative expression levels of gene targets. Users compare two or more samples -- say, cells from untreated and treated animals -- in order to determine if and how much the expression of their gene of interest is changing. Using Life Technologies real-time systems, in combination with either custom or pre-designed assays, users can look at either messenger RNA or small RNA targets, including specific micro RNAs. So what else can a real-time user do with her instrument? So many applications, so little time. A common one is using a standard curve to calculate absolute or relative copy number of a DNA target. This could be a pathogen in food or animal samples, a microbe in water, or any other detectable nucleic acid sequence. Speaking of food, some labs use qPCR to calculate %GMO in food samples in order to ensure that they meet legal standards. Copy number studies on genomic DNA targets are quite important to any number of labs, who typically need either to segregate animals with different copy numbers of a transgene, or to detect and quantify duplication or deletion events associated with a particular phenotype. Keep in mind, I only mention some of the more common possibilities. Fact is, pretty much any application that requires quantifying nucleic acid targets is possible in real-time. So what about experiments that aren't quantitative? The real-time system has you covered there, as well. Perhaps most notable is the allelic discrimination assay, which detects specific single nucleotide polymorphisms in DNA samples, then segregates samples based on their homozygous or heterozygous genotyopes. For researchers wanting to merely detect rather than quantify pathogens, including those present in samples at extremely low levels, our presence/absence application and associated detection reagents are an excellent option. There's also an option on many Life Technologies instruments to run high-resolution melting experiments, which can be used to check percent-methylation of short DNA target regions or to discover small sequence differences among multiple samples. Besides nucleic acid-based work, real-time is increasingly being used to look at proteins. Two applications worth mentioning are Life Technologies Protein Expression technology, which lets users determine relative expression levels of specific protein targets, as well as our protein thermal shift assay, the perfect application for screening different buffer conditions and ligands for their effect on protein thermal stability. And don't forget: regardless of the application, Life Technologies offers a full suite of reagents, assays, and analysis software to help you get the job done. That of course includes millions of pre-developed TaqMan Assays for a number of applications, including gene expression, SNP genotyping, and many more.

Troubleshooting qPCR - What are my amplification curves telling me?
 
01:01:10
Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is the method of choice for accurate estimation of gene expression. Part of its appeal for researchers comes from having a protocol that is easy to execute. However when your reactions do not result in ideal amplification, troubleshooting "why" can be challenging. Factors including sample quality, template quantity, master mix differences, assay design, and incorrect primer or probe resuspension can all influence efficient amplification. When troubleshooting, analysis of the appearance of your amplification curve can give you clues towards improving your results. This webinar will present a variety of problematic qPCR issues and how they are manifested in the amplification curve.
How to Optimize qPCR using SYBR Green Assays - Ask TaqMan #38
 
04:19
Learn More: http://www.thermofisher.com/sybr Are you new to using SYBR Green Assays for qPCR or having trouble getting accurate results? Today, let’s discuss how you can design and optimize qPCR using SYBR Green assays as the detection method. First, beware of reverse transcription (RT) bias when converting RNA to cDNA. Nearly all RT enzymes have the potential to introduce RT bias. When this happens the amount of cDNA won’t align with the amount in RNA samples. Learn More about RT Methods in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-8OuXFFJz0 You can test for RT bias by reverse transcribing two-fold dilutions of a known amount of RNA. Then run a qPCR standard curve for each assay and endogenous control. The standard cure should be linear with a target slope of -3.323.” Once the cDNA is generated make sure to use the right primers for the qPCR. You will need to use some bioinformatics to design your primers, such as a tool like SNPMasker. In general, primers should be 20 nucleotides in length with a GC content in the 30-70% range. The last 5 nucleotides at the 3’ end should include no more than two G or C bases to avoid specificity issues. Finally, amplicons should be short -- generally between 50 – 150 base pairs. The next step is primer validation. The objective is to find the right concentration of forward and reverse primers that will yield the most robust assay without non-specific amplification or primer dimers. This is accomplished by running multiple qPCRs with 3 different concentrations of forward and reverse primers in a matrix format. The appropriate range of primer concentration is determined by the master mix. For instance, Applied Biosystems PowerUp SYBR Green Master Mix works best with primer concentrations in the range of 300 – 800 nM. Getting back to our experiments to optimize primer concentrations, the next step is to evaluate the Ct and run a melting curve also known as a dissociation curve for each primer concentration combination. If dissociation curve shows primer-dimers, there are two options: A. Start over and redesign the primers. B. Alter cycling temperatures to remove primer-dimers. The last step in ensuring that your primer set is going to yield usable, reproducible data is to ensure the PCR efficiency is within 90 – 110%. You can do this by simply running a standard curve with at least 5 logs of input DNA and using the software on your instrument to calculate PCR efficiency. If this all seems too complicated, you can use pre-designed TaqMan assays instead, which removes the primer design variable and ensures the best possible primer set Once the primers are designed, experimental analysis can begin. Here’s a tip! For measuring relative gene expression levels of two different samples, most researchers use what’s known as the ΔΔCt (ddCt) method. This analysis generates relative changes form one state to the next, much like a disease state versus treatments For more information about SYBR Green experiments, TaqMan assays or related reagents, please visit http://www.thermofisher.com/qpcr or http://www.thermofisher.com/sybr And If you have more questions concerning SYBR green assays, ΔΔCt analysis or any other qPCR questions, remember to Ask TaqMan and submit your questions on our website http://www.thermofisher.com/ask Thanks for watching!
Homozygous vs. Heterozygous Samples in qPCR -- Ask TaqMan #23
 
04:37
Submit your question: http://bit.ly/1cgFftk Did you know that TaqMan assays can also be used for SNP Genotyping? While the assays use the same robust TaqMan chemistry, they contain two probes, and thus analysis is different than when using a Gene Expression assay. This prompted our next question, from Melissa Arria from the IVIC in Venezuela, who wondered was seeing amplification from both probes from a sample she knew was homozygous. She asked us: "How can I differentiate real homozygous samples from heterozygous samples?" Great question! But first, let's review how the assay works to understand what we are seeing. Like a Gene Expression assay, A TaqMan Genotyping assay contains Sequence-specific forward and reverse primers to amplify the polymorphic sequence of interest. However, as we mentioned, the SNP assays are unique since they contain not one, but TWO TaqMan® MGB probes. -- One probe labeled with VIC® dye detects the Allele 1 sequence -- One probe labeled with FAM™ dye detects the Allele 2 sequence Note that all Genotyping assays use the same notation for the context sequence, which is the immediate sequence around the SNP. The first base in brackets is detected by the VIC probe, and the second base by the FAM probe. You can find all this information online for every assay. The assays are combined with maste rmix and 1-20 ng of purified gDNA, and then amplified. Data can be collected in real-time or off line, as analysis is taken from the end point read of the fluorescence. The sample will either be homozygous for allele 2, which means we will see mostly VIC dye, homozygous for allele 1, which means we will see mostly FAM signal, or a heterozygous, which means there will be about equal contribution of signal from each dye. When viewed across an entire plate of samples, the data will typically resolve into 3 discrete clusters, assuming enough samples were used to display a normal distribution given the minor allele frequency for your SNP. Note that there are times in which you would not expect to see 3 clusters, such as when the gene is on the X chromosome, if a copy number variation is involved, or if the minor allele frequency is extremely low. Let's take a closer look at what's happening in each reaction. For example, this sample is a VIC dye homozygous call. However, if we look at the real time data, we'll see some amplification of both probes.
