Project description

Current methdology for the analysis of real time PCR data is incapable to cope with the problems of inhibition and uncertaintiy in the field of GMO detection (food safety). This project focuses on the amelioration of qPCR data analysis by developing a new model for reaction kinetic and measurement uncertainty.
