5. Molecular Biology Principles and Techniques for the Histotech (WS#56): Molecular pathology is often a less familiar entity for those accustomed to IHC and proteins. This seminar is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of basic molecular biology to offer a better understanding of the applications and diagnostic relevance of molecular pathology. A review of the scientific principles of molecular biology will be conducted. This will include understanding the transcription and translation processes. Different molecular techniques from PCR to ISH will be covered. The pros and cons of these techniques will be discussed, including which molecular techniques and methods are best suited for diagnostic, screening or treatment assessment purposes. The presentation will also look at the future for molecular pathology, and discuss routes for personalized medicine.”
