Molecular Pathology

Molecular pathology is the study of pathology which is used in the diagnosis of cancer and many other infectious diseases. It represents the principles of Molecular biology to evaluate human disease.

Most of the genetic disease processes give the result of mutation from a single gene or with Chromosomal rearrangement. Some of the genetic diseases include Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, Wilms tumor, Hemophilia, Sickle-cell anemia & Angelman syndrome, etc.

Various techniques such as quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), , in situ hybridization, DNA microarray, multiplex PCR,  , in situ RNA sequencing, antibody  immunofluorescence  assays, for antimicrobial resistance for bacterial genes.
