A novel approach for studying a large number of related gene targets in a single experiment

Pathway analysis has become an important application in life science research and drug development. Investigating how individual targets communicate and respond within complex molecular networks has helped elucidate how biological processes function at a cellular level. Academic institutions use network analysis to advance our fundamental understanding of molecular and cellular biology while pharmaceutical companies now apply pathway analysis to the development of next generation therapeutics. With the advent of genomics and personalized medicine, pathway-based analysis will become an even more valuable tool in aiding our understanding and ability to navigate signaling and disease networks. As the body of literature regarding these networks continues to rapidly increase, challenges such as assay design and therapeutics development can utilize this knowledge to increase the chance of success in research and development.

Read “Pathway Curation and Real-Time PCR Panel Design Strategy” to learn how Bio-Rad Laboratories’ pathway curation and ranking strategy ensures that the gene assays present on each real-time PCR pathway and collection panel are the most relevant for gene expression profiling based on differential expression studies and the frequency with which gene targets appear in the peer-reviewed literature.
