About this book
This two volume book set provides a comprehensive and practical overview of the state-of-the-art molecular biological diagnostic strategies that are currently used in a wide variety of disciplines. The volumes cover:
- Clinical microbiology and virology
- Clinical chemistry
- Veterinary medicine
- Plant Pathology
- Food safety
The first book is devoted to the theory and backgrounds of molecular techniques, amplification technology, next generation sequencing and bioinformatics for molecular laboratory diagnostics. As a fundament of reliable molecular diagnostic assays, the quality control required for validation, implementation and performance of molecular diagnostic assays is extensively discussed. The second book highlights the applications of these methods in the various diagnostic laboratories.These two full-colour well-illustrated volumes are particularly valuable for students, clinicians, scientists and other professionals who are interested in (designing) molecular diagnostic tests and for those who wish to expand their knowledge on the current molecular biological revolution. The extensive information in both books highlights the current trend of the integration of multiple (clinical) disciplines into one universal molecular laboratory.
