Abstract

Molecular diagnostics is the branch of laboratory medicine or clinical pathology that utilizes the techniques of molecular biology to diagnose disease, predict disease course, select treatments, and monitor the effectiveness of therapies. Molecular diagnostics is associated with virtually all clinical specialties and is a vital adjunct to several areas of clinical and laboratory medicine, but is most predominantly aligned with infectious disease, oncology, and genetics. The subject of this chapter is molecular genetics, which is concerned with the analysis of human nucleic acids as they relate to disease.
