Diagnostic Molecular Biologydescribes the fundamentals of molecular biology in a clear, concise manner to aid in the comprehension of this complex subject. Each technique described in this book is explained within its conceptual framework to enhance understanding, and current applications of clinical laboratory techniques are covered in detail.

The targeted approach covers the principles of molecular biology including the basic knowledge of nucleic acids, proteins, and genomes; the basic techniques and instrumentations that are often used in the field of molecular biology with detailed procedures and explanations; and the applications of the principle and techniques currently employed in the clinical laboratory.

  • Provides an understanding of what techniques are used to diagnosis at the molecular level
  • Explains how to use information technology to communicate and assess results in the lab
  • Places protocols into context with practical applications
