Current Topics in Molecular Diagnostics and Precision Medicine
Gregory J. Tsongalis, Editor

It has been almost 70 years since the first published description of the structure of DNA by Watson and Crick. No other section of laboratory medicine has experienced the explosive growth in molecular technologies and clinical applications as we have seen in molecular diagnostics. Beginning with relatively simple Southern blot transfer analyses and end-point polymerase chain reactions (PCR) through highly complex microarrays, digital PCR, and massively parallel sequencing, molecular technologies have impacted all facets of medical practice. Dramatic decreases in cost, vast improvements in turnaround times, and the ability to decentralize molecular technologies for use at point of care have resulted in unprecedented growth in implementation, reimbursement, and clinical utility.
