TaqMan Gene Expression Assay solutions to accelerate biomarker discovery and verification

The emergence of the Human Genome Project equipped researchers with new molecular tools for gene discovery and gene expression. It enabled researchers to identify the genetic defects associated with complex diseases, including common neurological diseases, and ushered in a new era of analysis. 

Complex diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease, are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.  At the heart of understanding and thereby treating complex diseases is identifying the many factors, both genetic and environmental, and the interaction of these factors, that affect disease onset and progression.  

TaqMan Gene Expression Assays allow researchers to use real-time PCR to investigate how gene expression is changed in samples taken from an individual with a complex disease.  Furthermore, TaqMan Assays are useful in in vitro studies focusing on a single genetic or environmental factor thought to be in involved in complex disease.
