        T138 Diagnostic Molecular Mycology


        Date: March 12, 2013; 2:00 p.m. (EST)
        Speaker: Nancy L. Wengenack, Ph.D.

        Description: Traditionally, mycology has utilized highly specialized technologists who spent years becoming proficient in the identification of yeasts and molds using macroscopic and microscopic methods. Within the last decade, the discipline has changed and while highly skilled technologists are still necessary, the techniques they now utilize also include molecular diagnostic tools such as nucleic acid and peptide nucleic acid hybridization probes, real-time PCR, DNA sequencing, and mass spectrometry.

        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:

        • Understand the utility and limitations of traditional phenotypic methods for the identification of yeasts and molds.
        • Identify the molecular methods currently used in mycology together with their advantages, limitations and relative costs.
        • Select the molecular method(s) in mycology that may be appropriate for their laboratory and patient population.
