from Gregory L. Shipley writing in PCR Troubleshooting and Optimization: The Essential Guide:
The MIQE (Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments) guidelines have been presented to serve as a practical guide for authors when publishing experimental data based on real-time qPCR. Each item is presented in tabular form as a checklist within the MIQE manuscript. However, this format has left little room for explanation of precisely what is expected from the items listed and no information on how one might go about assimilating the information requested. This chapter presents an expanded explanation of the guideline items with commentary on how those requirements might be met prior to publication.
