Advances in Genetic Analyis of Archived Samples
This on-demand webcast from DRUG DISCOVERY& DEVELOPMENT and G&P addresses the recent advances in Whole Genome Amplification that have made it possible to gain access to sufficient quantities of DNA from the millions of archived samples to perform a number of downstream applications including QPCR, CGH microarray, STR analysis, and SNP analysis.
