The seminar will focus on reverse transcription (RT) PCR based detection of foodborne viruses and will cover two topics:
1) rprimer - A new R/bioconductor package for the design of primers, probes and assays for sequence variable viruses. Presentation of the package together with a case study in the laboratory.
2) The use of RT droplet digital PCR for the detection and quantification of foodborne viruses. An overall performance evaluation and comparison with the current gold standard method, RT real-time PCR, based on combined data from three studies.
