Andrea Victor and Manuel Viotti, authors of "Accurate quantitation of mitochondrial DNA reveals uniform levels in human blastocysts irrespective of ploidy, age, or implantation potential," join experts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to discuss:

  • How can mitochondrial DNA be used to predict outcome with IVF?
  • Is mitochondrial DNA a predictor of ploidy or a predictor of embryo competence?
  • What are the best techniques to accurately quantitate mitochondrial DNA?
  • How do experts reconcile conflicting data regarding the use of mitochondrial DNA in the practice of IVF?
