Quantitative real-time PCR in aDNA research
*Subscription may be required
Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) is a technique that is widely used in the field of ancient DNA (aDNA). Quantitative PCR can be used to optimize aDNA extraction methodologies, to detect PCR inhibition, and to quantify aDNA libraries for use in high-throughput sequencing. In this chapter, we outline factors that need to be considered when developing efficient SYBR Green qPCR assays. We describe how to setup qPCR standards of known copy number and provide some useful tips regarding interpretation of qPCR data generated from aDNA templates.
