H and d curve

Definition

noun

A graph in which the density of the photographic film (vertical axis) is plotted against the logarithm of the relative exposure (horizontal axis), to illustrate the photographic characteristics of an emulsion (e.g. on an x-ray film).


Supplement

A characteristic curve depicts and measures the relationship between exposure and photographic density. It is used to describe the contrast characteristics of a photographic film for a particular range of exposure. The exposure needed to produce an image is also determined.

It is also called Hurter and Driffield curve (or H & D curve), named after Ferdinand Hurter and Vero Charles Driffield who first developed it.

Re: Brain size=IQ level theory (Blacks vs Whites & Asians)

... black and I think it's pretty obvious that I'm smarter than you. Hate to break it to you. :mrgreen: I also alluded to the frequency distribution curve. Distribution curves don't reflect genetics. IQ can be learned. IQ scores are not frozen in time for all eternity. IQ rises and IQ gaps close. ...

qPCR vs Northern Blot

... by qPCR - and then surprise - no silencing (or max around 20% efficiency). Primers had efficiency checked, and qPCR had no contamination, melting curve looked fine etc. Then I ask you - which result should I believe? Of course I'm going to repeat this, so far I just did technical repetition of ...

Problem with the normalization of PCR Ct values

Jackbean I agree with you, quantification of the pooled cDNA for the standard curve will result in knowing the conc. of the gene of interest. Tzua, any paper dealing with the expression level of a certain gene using RT-qPCR would be suffice I guess.
