Overview

Molecular Diagnostics: Fundamentals, Methods and Clinical Applications / Edition 2

This exceptional resource introduces the fundamentals of nucleic acid biochemistry as well as the advanced concepts integral to professional practice in today's laboratories. With a focus on the application of molecular concepts to diagnose diseases, the 2nd Edition reflects the many advances in this rapidly developing field.

Inside, you’ll find in-depth explanations of the principles of molecular-based assays as well as reference material and trouble-shooting tips for the laboratory. Discussions of general diagnostic procedures reflect the continuing emergence of new diagnostic technologies to prepare you to meet the challenges of the future.

“I would like to say that once published the second edition of ‘Molecular Diagnostics’ would be a significant addition to the advancing science of molecular diagnostics. It would serve the multi-purpose of a textbook and a reference guide as well as troubleshooter. I can imagine it would be equally admired by the educator, student and scientist.”

The book is great. I just wish that there were a Nook Study app for the Ipad or that I could see the book on my nook.
