mirTools 2.0

The MicroRNAs (miRNAs) can be defined as small, non-coding RNA. This miRNAs usually have a about 20 to 22 nucleotides. The main known role of this miRNAs is that they negatively regulate gene expression at post-transcriptional level. miRNAs play important roles in different pathological and physiological processes. Taken this into account, the identification and analysis […]

CpG island Searcher

CpG island Searcher. CpG islands are generally described as 200-bp stretch of DNA with a C+G content of 50% and an observed CpG/expected CpG in excess of 0.6. CpG islands located in the promoter regions of genes can play important roles in gene silencing and imprinting. With CpG island Searcher you can select the following […]

qPCR slope to efficiency

With this online tool you can calculate the % of efficiency of the PCR reaction, the exponent and the amplicication from the slope produced by the quantitative PCR standard curve. Slope values between -3.1 and -3.6 are acceptable, and they will give reaction efficiencies between 90% and 110%. The formula to calculate the efficiency is […]

Nucleic Acid concentration from OD260

Calculate the nucleic acid concentration of your DNA, RNA or oligonucleotides samples at the Optical Density 260 nm (OD260). Different concentrations of DNA, RNA and oligos have different ability aborbing light. At OD260, the Absorbance of light and the nucleic acid concentration is calculated as follows: where: C: the concentration of the nucleic acid, in […]
