And a second webinar this week presented by abcam:


Thursday, June 16, 2016
3pm-4pm CET / 2pm-3pm GMT / 9am-10am EST

Webinar Overview:

Drug‑induced cardiac injury (DICI) detection remains a major safety issue in drug development. While circulating microRNAs (miRs) have emerged as promising translational biomarkers, novel early detection biomarkers of cardiotoxicity are needed to evaluate toxicity in a time-dependent manner.

There are many different types of extracellular vesicles (EVs). Different subpopulations of exosomes, microvesicles and apoptotic bodies have been found to vary in size, composition and intracellular origin.

Within the last decade, cell-secreted EVs have been isolated from most of the fluids of the body, with many laboratories from around the world showing that their composition of lipids, proteins, messenger and micro RNAs are cell-type specific and subject to changes in pathological scenarios. As a result, EVs have been widely studied as a biological source to unravel low invasive biomarkers for predicting, diagnosing and monitoring diseases.
However, despite the many technological advances [click to continue…]

Webinar Summary:

Currently, more than half of the global cancer burden occurs in low-and middle-income countries, with 40% of those cancers related to infection. MicroRNA profiling has tremendous potential for the diagnosis and prognosis of a broad range of these cancers, as miRNA remains stable in many accessible sample matrices- such as blood, urine, saliva, and tissue- making them ideal biomarkers.

The full promise of miRNA profiling has yet to be realized, largely due to the limited throughput of existing technologies, lack of compatibility with samples containing PCR inhibitors, and errors introduced during sample preparation.

However, as Jordan Plieskatt and lab have seen in their work on NPC and CCA, while there are several multiplexing technologies for miRNA [click to continue…]

Webinar – microRNA Research Design: Strategies from the Experts

October 30, 2009

from Science Magazine Tuesday, November 10, 2009 – noon Eastern, 9 a.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. GMT MicroRNAs, or miRNAs, are increasingly being accepted as playing a crucial regulatory role in normal and dysfunctional cellular processes. They represent a class of small, noncoding RNA molecules, which have been shown to be involved in almost every human […]
