Value of qPCR in the Next Generation Sequencing Era

qPCR is still considered the gold standard for gene expression analysis, especially when template copy number is low. In short, NGS provides a great tool for analyzing a large number of genes to narrow down the research interest and qPCR provides a fast, reliable, and cost effective means to verify NGS results.
