Carbohydrates in milk come under scrutiny

Scientists from Aarhus University will be closely examining the content of healthy carbohydrates in cow's milk and whether it is possible to breed your way to milk with a higher content of these carbohydrates. The ambition is that this may improve formula milk for infants.

PCR seminar
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a common used method for e.g. analysis of gene expression. By using specific primers PCR amplifies specific genes of interests using limited amount of sample (e.g. 10 mg tissue). In RT-PCR (also known as qPCR) a fluorescent probe is introduced, making real-time minitoring of the amplification possible allowing for semi-quantitative analysis. This short seminal will introduce PCR and help you to include this in your future work.
