Promega: Ask the Experts: Ensuring a Successful PCR Every Time
September 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Do you have questions about PCR? Our Technical Support Scientists Natascha Buter and Joliene Lindholm will be answering all your questions about nucleic acid amplification. Learn more about endpoint PCR and how to make sure you have a successful run every time.
Register and submit your questions by August 17 to have the best shot at hearing Natascha and Joliene answer it in the presentation.
ADDITIONAL WEBINAR INFORMATION:
We’ve all had that heartbreaking moment: the UV light turns on and you realize there’s no band where your target sequence should be. PCR issues can ruin your day and set you back in your project, but our Technical Support Scientists are here to help.
In this live webinar, amplification experts Natascha Buter and Joliene Lindholm will answer all your questions about PCR optimization and troubleshooting.
PRESENTERS: Natascha Buter, MS and Joliene Lindholm, PhD
Joliene Lindholm, PhD – Joliene is a Technical Services Scientist at Promega Corporation based in Madison, WI. She received a B.S. in Molecular Biology from Montana State University and her PhD in Entomology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As a graduate student, Joliene worked to elucidate the molecular mode of action of the insect juvenile hormone using fruit flies as a model organism. The Technical Services Scientist role provides her the opportunity to utilize her 10+ years of laboratory experience in molecular and biochemistry techniques to advance the scientific endeavors of customers. She specializes in the Promega product areas of Biologics and Mass Spectrometry. She says “The best thing about my job is learning about all the interesting projects that scientists are investigating; this is always something new and exciting and I get to help them succeed in their goals.”
Natascha Buter, MS – Natascha is a Technical Services Scientist at Promega Corporation based in Madison, WI. She received her BS in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from the University of Colorado, Boulder and her MS in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During her graduate work and later as a lab scientist, Natascha focused her work on elucidating how mRNAs are regulated via their 3’UTRs. She used fungi, worms, fruit flies, and mice as model organisms. Her broad experience in many molecular techniques is very useful in supporting customers as a Technical Services Scientist. She specializes in the Promega product areas of Biologics and Detection Instruments. She especially enjoys interacting with customers coming from many different scientific backgrounds, from high school students to veteran PIs to senior researchers in the private industry.
