Real-time PCR is a variation of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) that allows simultaneous (i.e., in real-time) amplification and detection of DNA templates.

The goal of the MLSC is to develop instruments that can measure multiple parameters in living cells in real time. This will allow researchers to correlate cellular events with known genomic information and promises to open up entirely new fields of research. By studying many cell types, we avoid the heterogeneity currently hampering disease diagnosis. As the science advances, we will focus on genomics and health in cells. The impact of this research includes improving our understanding and treatment of cancer, heart disease and stroke.
