Reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) is a robust technique for the quantification and comparison of gene expression. To obtain reliable results with this method, one or more reference genes must be employed to normalize expression...
When Plan S was launched in September 2018, concerns were immediately raised about the prospects for young and early-career researchers, who depend on publication records for future career development.
