SELECTBIO Conferences Genomic Applications of qPCR, dPCR & NGS

Genomic Applications of qPCR, dPCR & NGS Keynote Speakers



Mikael Kubista
Professor/Founder, TATAA Biocenter AB

Dr Kubista is founder and CEO of the TATAA Biocenters (www.tataa.com) and he is also head of the department of gene expression at the institute of Biotechnology of the Czech Academy of Sciences. He was one of the pioneers contributing to the development of quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) and introduced qPCR for single cell expression profiling. He led the development of reagents for high throughput expression profiling at his team develop qPCR tomography for intracellular expression profiling. Most recently Kubista co-developed ValidPrime.

Michael Pfaffl
Professor, Technical University of Munich

Michael W. Pfaffl started 1986 to study ‘Agriculture - Animal Science’ and ‘Biotechnology’ at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). In 1997 he obtained his PhD in ‘Molecular Physiology’ in the field of molecular muscle and growth physiology at the Chair of Physiology. In June 2003 he completed his Venia Legendi (Dr. habil.) at the Center of Life and Food Sciences Weihenstephan with the title ‘Livestock transcriptomics -- Quantitative mRNA analytics in molecular endocrinology and mammary gland physiology’.
Early 2010 he became Professor of ‘Molecular Physiology’ at the TUM School of Life Sciences. Today he has reached the ‘Principal Investigator’ status at the Institute of Animal Physiology & Immunology and is one of the leading scientists in the field of Gene Quantification, RT-qPCR technology, RNA sequencing, and complex data analysis in mRNA & small-RNA expression profiling.

He is author of around 180 peer reviewed publications, 40 book chapters, and held more than 200 lectures worldwide. In March 2012 the Elsevier SciVerse Scopus Award 2012 was granted to Prof. Michael W. Pfaffl, whose top cited Scopus article entitled "A new mathematical model for relative quantification in real-time RT-PCR" published 2001 in Nucleic Acids Research 29(9) has been cited today more than 20,500 times.
He is coauthor of the Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments (MIQE) guidelines (2009) and coauthor of the dMIQE guidelines for digital PCR (2013).
Professor Michael W. Pfaffl has editorial involvements as Editor in ‘Methods’, Founding & Section Editor in ‘Biomolecular Detection and Quantification’ and Editor-in-Chief of the ‘Gene Quantification’ webportal (www.Gene-Quantification.info), the world biggest webpage around qPCR, dPCR and Gene Expression profiling techniques and applications. He is initiator and lead organizer of the qPCR, dPCR & NGS Gene Quantification Event series in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany since 2004 (www.eConferences.de).
