    Abstract: Quantitative competitive polymerase chain reaction (QC-PCR) technique is playing an important role in nucleic acid quantification. This paper describes a new statistical approach for data analyzing in relative quantitative competitive PCR assays. In order to test the accuracy of this statistical model for quantifying anaerobic rumen fungi, samples ... Show More
