        T130 General Molecular Biology Overview

        Date: January 15, 2013; 2:00 p.m. (EST)
        Speaker: Richard L. Hodinka, Ph.D.; The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, PA

        Description: A general overview of molecular biology is important to fully appreciate the molecular techniques being implemented in the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory. With this session, the basic structure and function of DNA, RNA, and various proteins will be discussed and the fundamental molecular events that underlie nucleic acid amplification will be reviewed.

        Intended Audience: The course is open to anyone! However, since it is a practical course, laboratory personnel (e.g., medical technologists, supervisors, and directors) with a minimum of a bachelors-degree and familiarity with clinical microbiology would benefit the most. Limited to U.S. and Canadian residents.

        Objectives: Following this session, the participants should be able to:

        • Discuss the basic principles of molecular biology.
        • Describe and apply genetic concepts to molecular diagnostics.
        • Define and apply some of the most commonly used terms and definitions used in molecular testing.
