  • About this book

  • Covers molecular diagnostics
  • Overviews of molecular medicine as applied broadly to neoplastic, genetic and infectious disease
  • Introduction to subsequent volumes in important new series
  • Covers potential for treatment of complex diseases

Volume 1 begins with an introduction covering the concepts of molecular medicine and personalized medicine. Subsequent chapters cover the topics of genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, and proteomics, as the tools of molecular pathology and foundations of molecular medicine. These chapters are followed by a series of chapters that provide overviews of molecular medicine as applied broadly to neoplastic, genetic, and infectious diseases, as well as a chapter on molecular diagnostics (how we harness diagnostic clues to guide treatment). The volume concludes with a chapter that delves into the promise of molecular medicine in the personalized treatment of patients with complex diseases, along with a discussion of the challenges and obstacles to personalized patient care.
