How many real time-PCR reactions for statistics and how?
Posted 11 June 2012 - 11:42 AM
The task is to follow expression of four genes (incl. the housekeeping) in six experimental groups (three individuals each).
This makes 76 single ractions (all samples (3) from all groups (6) with all primers (4) + 4NTC).
I was told that two real time plates can not be compared but I wonder how the statistical evaluation would be done?
Which variant would be better:
1. One plate with 76 single reactions and some.....calbration between them (I heard some trick with the treshold line) - three-four times;
2. One plate with 1 individual from each group with all primers, in triplicate - three times, for all individuals;
3. One plate with all samples fom all groups (18) and only one primer, in triplicate - four times for the four primers?
