New and informative webinar will focus on helping genomic researchers better understand technical hurdles in the analysis of FFPE-derived RNA. The broadcast takes place on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 1pm EDT.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
Formalin-fixed Paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues present many sample preparation, extraction and method development challenges. Despite these difficulties, interest in genomic analysis of FFPE samples remains high, and large collections of clinically-annotated FFPE material await analysis.
Join the presenter, Dr. Patrick Hurban, Global Head of Genomic Research and Development at EA | Quintiles, as he describes the methods and best practices based on the extensive work EA | Quintiles has performed analyzing both RNA and DNA from FFPE samples.
This webinar is intended to help genomic researchers better understand technical hurdles in the analysis of FFPE-derived RNA to:
- Learn how EA has overcome challenges inherent in FFPE samples
- Gain insight into experimental design considerations
- Learn how to exploit your collection of FFPE material
By attending the webinar you will learn:
- How RNA sequencing data derived from fresh frozen and FFPE material can be compared
- How to design experiments that obtain meaningful data from your FFPE samples
