About this book


Molecular and cell morphological methods have increased rapidly in number and versatility in recent years and, with the completion of the human genome project, will come into much greater demand for the study of human genes and diseases. In Morphology Methods: Cell and Molecular Biology Techniques, Ricardo Lloyd, md, phd, provides critical and tutorial surveys of the cutting-edge molecular and cell biologic techniques used today in the analysis of cells and tissues in situ. These molecular-based histologic and morphologic techniques are described in step-by-step detail by hands-on experts, often those who have originated or perfected them. Among the techniques presented are laser capture microdissection, in situ hybridization, FISH, confocal laser scanning microscopy, in situ PCR, and tyramide amplification. Applications include the detection of infectious agents and DNA, the diagnosis of undifferentiated tumors and endocrine lesions, the metaphase analysis of whole blood cultures, and clonality analysis. Valuable notes on potential pitfalls and practical tips designed to ensure success are included with each method.
In its integrated, state-of-the-art approach, Morphology Methods: Cell and Molecular Biology Techniques thoroughly details and applies the rich panoply of significant new cell and molecular biologic technologies to all the major problems confronting morphologic studies and diagnostic pathology today.
