On-demand video is part of everyday life. Streaming services let you binge watch your favorite TV show or even learn how to bathe your hedgehog. It also turns out that researchers are turning to YouTube to find answers to their everyday questions in the lab. Thermo Fisher Scientific figured this our pretty early on, and launched a dedicated video series for qPCR, called Ask TaqMan. Since premiering in June 2012, the Ask TaqMan has tallied up over a quarter million views with over 9800 hours of viewing time by life science researchers. What’s more, the videos are based on real-world questions sent in by viewers.
This week, a new video series called Seq It Out makes its debut to tackle all things sequencing (from NGS to Sanger). And next week, new Ask TaqMan videos will start rolling out.
Seq It Out and Ask TaqMan videos will alternative releases on YouTube every week so be sure to subscribe to the Thermo Fisher Scientific YouTube Channel to stay up to date on the latest episodes. And if a question pops into your head while you’re watching, just send them in – the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific just might make an episode out of it!
