Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, accounting for 23% of all cancer diagnoses. Early detection of breast cancer metastasis would allow for changes in treatment strategy before the disease progression becomes apparent. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the enrichment and detection value – as well as the prognostic and predictive value – of the AdnaTestBreast in breast cancer.

 

Using the Combination of Combinations Principle (COCP), AdnaTest BreastCancer enables highly specific immunomagnetic cell selection for enriching circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from peripheral blood. It also allows sensitive analysis of breast cancer-associated gene expression in enriched CTCs by reverse transcription and PCR. The high performance of AdnaTest BreastCancer has been demonstrated in dozens of peer-reviewed publications. Several studies have reported that HER2 expression is different in primary tumors compared to CTCs. In addition, AdnaTestBreast HER2 overexpression profile corresponds to HER2 metastatic phenotype; and HER2 detected by the AdnaTestBreast and AdnaTest EMT-2/StemCell seems to initiate EMT and tumor stemness.

Targeted DNA sequencing has enabled efficient and accurate detection of novel and rare somatic mutations in oncology. This powerful approach achieves high coverage of the region of interest while keeping the sequencing cost and the complexity of data interpretation manageable. However, existing PCR-based target enrichment approaches introduce errors due to PCR amplification bias and artifacts. Such errors significantly affect quantification accuracy and limit the ability to confidently detect low-frequency DNA variants. This webinar introduces a new digital sequencing approach that is based on the use of unique molecular indices (UMIs): the QIAseq Targeted DNA Panels. With UMIs, each unique DNA molecule is barcoded before any amplification takes place to correct for PCR errors. Detailed workflow and several applications in oncology research will be presented. Join us and learn about this exciting new digital DNAseq technology.

Exosomes and other extracellular vesicles (EVs) such as microvesicles carry functional cargo and play an important role in disease progression. Recently, exosomal RNAs, especially microRNAs, have attracted tremendous interest as potential circulating diagnostic biomarkers. This webinar presents an integrated system for identification and characterization of specific RNA molecules from exosomes and other extracellular vesicles (EVs). Advanced assay technologies for characterization of the RNA profiles including mRNA, microRNA and long non-coding RNAs (RNAs) from serum exosomes will be introduced and discussed.

In this webinar we will introduce the scientist-friendly Microbial Genomics Pro Suite offering workflows optimized for microbiome profiling, microbial typing and outbreak analysis. The workflows and tools for microbial genomics introduced with this software package are further extending the comprehensive set of genomics, transcriptomics and epigenomics analysis solutions that researchers know from CLC Genomics Workbench.

The webinar will focus on how users can, with few simple steps, analyze 16S rRNA data to obtain and compare taxonomic profiles of microbial communities. You will also learn how to assemble and annotate metagenomes to generate functional profiles, and how to carry out statistical comparisons of relative abundance between sample groups in the context of experiment-relevant metadata.

In this webinar, we will introduce the newest NGS solution from QIAGEN, the QIAseq miRNA Library Kit. miRNA sequencing has the potential to uncover new miRNAs, identify processing intermediates and also quantitative differences between samples. However, challenges such as FFPE and serum/plasma samples, the need for high amounts of sample input and tedious workflows using size selection electrophoresis has led to disappointing and often irreproducible results.

 

QIAGEN has developed a revolutionary new miRNA sequencing kit to remove these limitations for miRNA-seq. Our kit ensures highly reproducible and cost-effective miRNA-seq – regardless of the sample. Whether you’re working with serum, cells, tissues or FFPE samples, proprietary technology provided by the QIAseq miRNA Library Kit ensures removal of adapter-based dimers, which allows you to achieve higher levels of usable miRNA mapped reads. In addition, the kit allows a completely gel-free workflow for maximum convenience, starting with only 1 ng of total RNA.

 

The QIAseq miRNA Library Kit includes a free online data analysis portal for mapping reads and interpreting the unique molecular indices (UMI), allowing you to obtain the most unbiased and highest-fidelity results possible. Join us for this webinar to discover what you’ve been missing in your miRNA-seq experiments.

Rapidly developing next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies provide highly sensitive methods for discovering and characterizing the genetic information of a variety of samples. However, DNA samples are often limited in quantity, as well as compromised in quality. Such samples are not suitable for standard NGS library construction methods, which commonly require hundreds of nanograms of high-quality DNA. Examples of such challenging samples include circulating DNA, laser capture microdissection (LCM) samples, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples, ancient DNA and chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) samples.

In this webinar, we describe the measures that should be taken into consideration while sequencing such challenging samples. We will also present methods that can be used to optimize library construction to efficiently convert small amounts of DNA samples into high-quality sequencing libraries.

Given their association with tumorigenesis, fusion genes are attractive targets for developing new drugs and identifying relevant biomarkers. And while NGS has recently been used to discover and identify fusion genes, the current method is complicated, expensive and requires relatively large amount of samples. In this webinar, we will introduce the QIAseq Targeted RNAscan Panels – a novel, complete Sample to Insight solution that applies the unique molecular indices (UMIs) strategy to detect known and new fusion genes. The system enables the detection of a large number of fusion genes as well as identification of new fusion gene partners, up to 384 samples per sequencing run. It is suitable for RNA samples from FFPE, blood and plasma with input as low as 15 ng of un-enriched RNA. Experiment workflow and application data will be presented. Join us and learn how you can use this powerful tool to detect and discover known and novel fusion genes.
