2-Hour Virtual Webinar: Statistical Elements of Real Time qPCR

January 29, 2020

Learn More About the RT-qPCR Webinar

Join Elaine Eisenbeisz as she shows you how to use data to estimate a standard curve, how to perform computations for absolute and relative quantification. She will also present a few decision-making criteria and statistical tests that can be used with qPCR data.

Why you should attend:

  • If you work with gene expression data, you should attend.
  • Often researchers run the tests and collect data, then are not sure of the best way to test the data for differences and interactions between groups, targets and references, and/or calibrator and test samples.
  • Also, there is often a need to control for different researchers or samples in a statistical analysis. Learn how to add and interpret additional factors you may need into your statistical model design.
  • Concrete information on sample size, data structure, and interpretation of analysis findings will be presented in examples and Elaine will make some time at the end of the presentation to answer specific questions from the audience.
  • Some knowledge of correlation and/or simple linear regression is desired.
  • Real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR) includes a set of computations to find counts and fold-differences in gene expression data. qPCR is thus an important aspect in many biomedical fields, when a researcher wants to know the answers to the questions of (1) How many copies in the expression? (absolute quantification) or (2) What is the fold-difference between gene expressions (relative quantification).
  • The literature on statistical testing of qPCR data is a bit ambiguous, and there are numerous tests that can be used depending on the question you are asking.
  • 2-Day Seminar: Biostatistics for the Non-Statistician

    March 23rd and 24th, 2020, San Francisco, CA

    Learn More About the Biostatistics for the Non-Statistician Seminar

    Statistics is a useful decision-making tool in the clinical research arena. When working in a field where a p-value can determine the next steps on development of a drug or procedure, it is imperative that decision makers understand the theory and application of statistics.

    Many statistical softwares are now available to professionals. However, these softwares were developed for statisticians and can often be daunting to non-statisticians. How do you know if you are pressing the right key, let alone performing the best test?

    This seminar provides a non-mathematical introduction to biostatistics and is designed for non-statisticians. And it will benefit professionals who must understand and work with study design and interpretation of findings in a clinical or biotechnology setting.

    The focus of the seminar is to give you the information and skills necessary to understand statistical concepts and findings as applies to clinical research, and to confidently convey the information to others.

    Emphasis will be placed on the actual statistical (a) concepts, (b) application, and (c) interpretation, and not on mathematical formulas or actual data analysis. A basic understanding of statistics is desired, but not necessary.

    2-Day Seminar: Clinical Data Management (FDA E6 GCP Guidelines)

    March 26th and 27th, San Francisco, CA

    Learn More About the Clinical Data Management Seminar

    Clinical data management (CDM) is paramount for a successful research. After all, Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO).

    CDM involves all aspects of collecting, processing, and interpreting information. There are many types of computer applications and database systems to support data collection and management. However, there are elements of CDM that apply across the board. Review and approval of drugs or devices by regulatory agencies requires the assumption that the data presented are valid and reliable. Integrity of the data is paramount to ensure confidence in the results and conclusions you will make.

    This seminar is based on FDA E6 GCP Guidelines which are the basis of effective data quality management. Even if your research is not FDA regulated, the information you learn in this course will help to ensure a robust data collection and management plan. The information conveyed in this course will also assist investigators in setting up processes for smoother data monitoring and auditing.

    Examples of CRF’s and required documentation will be presented. Data collection and preparation techniques will also be demonstrated, and will include the use of CDISC and SDTM standards. Additionally, this workshop will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to assure a CDM plan that holds up when the inevitable deviations from protocol occur.

    Join the Stats for the Masses mailing list to receive the “Stats Grab Bag” email with useful resources and links relating to the work I do each week. I like to think of it as tidbits from practice. You’ll never know what you’ll get, but it could be just what you need!
