The LightCycler 480 instrument is designed for the High Throughput analysis for gene expression studies and also for a variety of genotyping applications. To move this technology even further the instrument can be used for protein melting. This talk will cover the major applications that can be performed on an high throughput basis and also high light the RealTime Ready focus/custom panels – bringing chemistry (Universal Probes) of the reactions to the high throughput platform providing a seamless transition. All these accompanied by the separating unique qualities of the instrument make the high throughput a reality in the current molecular biology research scenario.

Innovative Technologies in Global Health Sep 28, 2011 from 12:30 PM to 01:30 PM 133 Rosenau (Gillings School of Global Public Health),
Jock Brandis is founder and director of research and development at the Full Belly Project. In 2001, Brandis traveled to Mali to fix a small village’s water treatment system. While there, he came across a woman who told him that it would be of great service to her village if he could find them an affordable peanut sheller. Brandis went back home and designed and developed the Universal Nut Sheller. In 2003 he teamed up with a group of returned Peace Corps volunteers to form the Full Belly Project.
Next-Generation PostLight Sequencing With Semiconductor Chips Sep 27, 2011 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM Bioinformatics Auditorium,
We invite you to join Dr. Jeremy Stuart of Life Technologies, to discuss next-generation PostLight™ sequencing with semiconductor chips. Ion Torrent has developed the world’s first semiconductor-based DNA sequencing technology, directly translating chemical information into digital data. DNA sequencing is performed with all natural nucleotides on Ion’s proprietary semiconductor chips, leveraging a billion years of evolution and a trillion dollars of investment to allow unprecedented scalability, speed, and costs according to Moore’s Law. Because Ion Torrent technology doesn't use light, it vastly reduces the cost and time of sequencing while still delivering next-generation sequencing throughputs. This may democratize the field of next-generation sequencing and have important implications for clinical, diagnostic, and research applications in which speed is of paramount significance.
