< back to Coming workshops


 
THIS WORKSHOP WAS SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED!

WE THANK ALL PARTICIPANTS FOR BEING SUCH A COOL GROUP!

The hands-on 4-day qPCR Experience® workshop: Real-time PCR in Plant pathology: Diagnostics and Reseach focused on diagnostics and quantification of plant pathogenic microorganisms using real-time PCR integrating EPPO Guidelines. 





Workshop was organised in collaboration with National Institute of Biology (NIB) and Vitisens project.

        


 

The workshop reviewed of qPCR theory, practical guidance on plant sample preparation and quality control, assay design, quality assurance according to ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 standards. Workshop included extensive hands-on lab sessions in ISO accredited laboratories of National Institute of Biology in Ljubljana with state-of-the-art qPCR centre and data analysis sessions.



qPCR Instructors on the workshop:
Dr. Tanja Dreo*, Uni. Prof. Dr. Maja Ravnikar*, Mag. Nataša Mehle*, Dr. Manca Pirc*, Dr. Urška Čepin, Dr. Matjaž Hren
* Plant pathology specialists from the Department of Biotechnology and Systems Biology at National Institute of Biology.

Guest lecturer
Dr. Neil Boonham, the team leader at Fera (The Food and Environment Research Agency, York, United Kingdom) and world known specialist for development of new molecular tools (qPCR, microarrays, LAMP, new generation sequencing) in microbiology. He will share his knowledge and experience in his lecture about new approaches to plant pathogens diagnostics with emphasis on LAMP.
