MTCC 464 Molecular Diagnostics

Lectures and reading assignments cover the basic principles of cytogenetics, FISH, and various PCR and molecular methodologies. Laboratory work allows the students to observe setup, processing, and result analysis of the various specimen types and testing procedures. Upon completion of lectures, exams, and laboratory exercises, the student will correlate the knowledge of molecular testing to the most commonly performed applications in the clinical laboratory, such as cell culture and karyotyping; basic FISH laboratory processes, test and result analysis; and PCR / GenProbe technologies as they apply to human disease and diagnosis.
