Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction—more affectionately known as qPCR—has become a staple in many molecular biology labs. For researchers who use qPCR, an equally important acronym is MIQE, which stands for the Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments. MIQE guidelines are in place to ensure the accuracy, interpretability, and reproducibility of published qPCR experiments. So, are your experiments in compliance? You can easily monitor your experiments using the MIQE qPCR app. This app allows one to create projects and update checklists corresponding to MIQE guidelines. Project information can also be exported. In addition, the app contains references to current literature regarding MIQE, experimental design, sample preparation, nucleic acid extraction, protocols, and other pertinent qPCR topics. Thus, this app both allows researchers to monitor their experiments and to keep up-to-date on the latest qPCR news.
