Online Translation Service

Since October 2008 we provide an online translation service of the
Gene Quantification pages to several languages. Please recognize this
is an automatic and robotic based translation service, and therefore
we can give NO guarantee about the generated content. It should help
to understand the "rough" content of the Gene Quantification pages,
but still the original is the ENGLISH version:


With the new qPCR INFO PORTAL and all the presented tools we will help
you with to find the right information about qPCR and related topics
in Molecular Biology in the literature and in the World Wide Web.
= Papers / Protocols / Methods / Databases / Alets / Feeds / Books /
Forums / E-mail / Directory


Upcoming Events World-wide academic and commercial qPCR Events

Symposia, Meetings, Conferences, Workshops, Seminars, Online-Seminars,
qPCR Education Program, etc.

BioEPS GmbH / TATAA Biocenter Germany - qPCR Application workshops

At the TATAA Biocenter Germany we offer qPCR application workshops, a
3-day qPCR Core Module and a 2-day qPCR Biostatistics Module. All
courses are held regularly in Göteborg, Sweden, in English and in
Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany, in German and English, and in Prague,
Czech Republic in English and Czech.
Depending on the occasion the workshop language and the different
prices may apply. Further customized workshops and specialized
trainings will be held as well across Europe and world-wide.
TATAA Biocenter Germany workshops are held in cooperation with BioEPS
GmbH, located at the campus of the Technical University of Munich, in
Freising-Weihenstephan, very close to the Munich Airport (MUC). For
