Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The editor of this book assembled a comprehensive textbook . that covered multiple disease categories and laboratory applications. . The purpose is to provide a reference for those interested in molecular pathology only as applied to oncology. . This book is written for practicing molecular diagnosticians, but it would also be useful to laboratory medicine/pathology residents in training, molecular pathology or molecular diagnostics fellows, or clinical practitioners for whom this would have great interest (i.e., hematology/oncology practitioners, fellows in training, oncology surgeons, radiation oncology specialists)."
