Molecular Epidemiology : Principles and Practice
Molecular epidemiology utilizes the same paradigm as traditional epidemiology, but uses biological markers to identify exposure, disease or susceptibility. This book presents the epidemiologic methods pertinant to biological markers. It is designed to enumerate the considerations necessary for valid field research and provides a resource on the salient features of biological indicators. This book should be of interest to graduate students and researchers in epidemiology and molecular biology, cancer researchers and medical residents.
