Review quote

From the reviews: "A compilation of genetic tests and related information ... . This book would be of great interest to molecular genetics fellows, pathology/laboratory medicine residents or fellows, practicing pathologists, and oncologists. It would also be of interest to anyone in the healthcare professions ... . I also recommend it to practitioners looking for a comprehensive and concise, state-of-the-art book on clinically useful molecular/genetic tests. It is a great study guide during training and would be a great review book in preparation for specialty board certification exams." (Valerie L. Ng, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008) "This book provides a comprehensive review of the various molecular genetic tests that are currently being conducted at research and clinical laboratories. This textbook is robust and would be useful in an advanced genetics course ase part of a clinical-based diagnosic genetics-based graduate program; genetic training postdoctoral program, or molecular genetic pathology post-MD fellowship training program. In addition, some of the chapters in this book could be incorporated into existing advanced cytogenetic courses or upper-level molecular biology courses. In summary, Molecular Genetic Pathology is a comprehensive review guide that looks at the various theories and methodologies of how molecular genetic testing is being performed." (Reviewed by Peter Hu, Molecular Genetic Technology Program, The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas) "The book features chapters written by experts in all aspects of molecular pathology ... . this is a timely and useful book, principally because of its comprehensiveness. Readers seeking an introduction to molecular diagnostics will probably find it thin on background explanations and overwhelming in detail. ... for trainees and laboratory workers in the field who need a quick summary of available techniques and diagnostic markers, it should prove to be a valuable and convenient resource." (Jeffrey Sklar, The New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 360 (20), May, 2009)show more
