Molecular Diagnosis of Genetic Diseases by Rob Elles

By Rob Elles

This thoroughly revised and up-to-date moment version to integrates the numerous new applied sciences and insights now to be had for the analysis of genetic illnesses. The authors use such methodologies as PCR optimization dosage research, mutation scanning, and quantitative fluorescent PCR for aneuploidy research, Neurofibromatosis kind 1, and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. those mostly customary methodologies can be tailored to such a lot genetic stipulations for which a molecular analysis is suitable, irrespective of how widespread or infrequent their occurrence. Molecular prognosis of Genetic ailments, moment version deals diagnostic molecular geneticists a different chance to sharpen their medical abilities within the layout of assays, their execution, and their interpretation.
