Course Molecular Diagnostics XII

The Erasmus Medical Center houses many different molecular diagnostic techniques, which are subject to continuous research and are developed based on their practical applications. These applications are based on all areas of the healthcare, such as Clinical Genetics, Infectious Diseases, Complex Diseases, Forensic Science, and a broad spectrum of oncological adaptations.
This course is a yearly updated version of the first issues organized from 2007 on.

The course starts with 3 presentations on basic molecular techniques:

PCR and real-time, quantitative PCR;
DNA sequencing; basic technologies;
Next generation Sequencing (NGS);
Followed by 1,5 day on the applications in various fields.

Last time, this course was sponsored by Agena Bioscience:
