PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Please note that a website has been constructed that provides additional information about LRE qPCR, in addition to providing the most current version of the LRE Analyzer, a fully featured Java desktop program that automates LRE-based quantification.

The site also includes a three part video that provides a detailed overview of how LRE qPCR was developed and tested.

The prototypic Java program provided as supplementary materials has been updated, which fixes a number of bugs and provides a somewhat improved algorithm for LRE window selection. A copy of this updated program can be obtained by request to the corresponding author.
