DNA and RNA quality control
The quality of your DNA and RNA samples may greatly affect the outcome of your experiments. A preanalytical assessment of the DNA/RNA integrity may be advised prior to setting up expensive experiments.
Next to the methods listed below, DNA and RNA QC can be performed through qPCR and contamination of DNA and RNA samples can be assessed spectrophotometrically via the Nanodrop.
