Quantitative PCR (qPCR) and reverse transcription qPCR (RT-qPCR) are utilized to monitor the amplification of a targeted DNA molecule and for quantification of mRNA, microRNA and lncRNA expression, respectively. It is well known that qPCR-based approaches for gene expression studies have a superior sensitivity, specificity, linear dynamic range of quantification, as well as a high level of flexibility, making RT-qPCR the gold standard for targeted expression analysis in the diagnostic space.
