I want to ask question about how to change your real-time pcr result.
I isolated RNA from, lets say 30 mg tissue (which the weight could be variable between one sample to another, but for example, just stick to the 30 mg). then I measured the concentration using nanodrop, and got the result 200 ng/ul (the RNA final volume is 30 ul). for the cdna synthesis, I took 100 ng total RNA, resulting in 20 ul cdna final volume, and for real-time pcr, I use 1 ul from the cdna with the final volume qpcr is 10 ul. then I ran the qpcr essay along with the standard curve, and assume all the reaction went well, I got the result 1000 copies RNA/ul.
The question is, how do I get to change the 1000 copies/ul into x copies/mg tissue? And if mathematical equation really can make it, is it r eally okay to change that? since it's involving molecular process, not only mathematical application?
thank you and sorry if you find my question a lil bit confusing.
