Techniques of molecular biology have only recently been integrated into the clinical laboratory. Most medical technologists will not have had any formal training or experience in the area of molecular diagnostic medicine, yet may be involved in molecular-based testing techniques. This course will provide them with an opportunity to learn about this exciting field of study and fill a critical gap in their laboratory training.
Molecular Diagnostics: Fundamentals, Methods, and Clinical Applications is an excellent, up-to-date textbook. The course consists of three sections.
Section A details the basics of molecular biology: DNA • RNA • Proteins • Common Techniques in Molecular Biology • Resolution and Detection of Nucleic Acids • and Analysis and Characterization of Nucleic Acids and Proteins.
Section B examines: Nucleic Acid Amplification • Chromosomal Structure and Chromosomal Mutations • Gene Mutations • DNA Sequencing • and DNA Polymorphisms and Human Identification.
Section C describes: Detection and Identification of Microorganisms • Molecular Detection of Inherited Diseases • Molecular Oncology • DNA-based Tissue Typing • Quality Assurance and Quality Control in the Molecular Laboratory.
Sections A and B meet the Florida 1-hour specialty requirements in microbiology, chemistry, cytology, and molecular pathology. Section C also meets the histology requirement.
Sorry, but this edition of Molecular Diagnostics is now out of print. If you already have a copy of the book but haven't used it for credit, you can still order the quizzes. The course expires on December 31, 2013.
