Have you ever read a research article with qPCR data and wished that the authors had given you more information about what they did or how they did it? Or have you ever felt your data was more heavily scrutinized and criticized compared to others? The MIQE guidelines serve to normalize the field by ensuring that accurate results are published and that scientists can understand and interpret the experiments.
Greg Shipley, one of the world's foremost experts in qPCR, will discuss the MIQE (Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments) guidelines live Tuesday June 8th 9 am Pacific/ 12 pm Eastern. The MIQE Guidelines have been presented to serve as a practical guide for authors when publishing experimental data based on real-time qPCR. Each item is presented in tabular form as a checklist within the MIQE manuscript. However, this format has left little room for explanation of precisely what is expected from the items listed and no information on how one might go about assimilating the information requested. This presentation presents an expanded explanation of the guideline items with commentary on how those requirements might be met prior to publication.
