Molecular Biology

Molecular biologists use a wide variety of techniques to prepare specimens for diagnosing genetic diseases, identifying infectious agents and paternity testing. These professionals are experts in tests and methods that are increasingly common in clinical diagnostic settings and in research and forensic laboratories. These methods include:

  • DNA/RNA extrac­tion
  • Southern blot
  • Western blot
  • Gene amplification
  • Gene sequencing

Our students are trained in DNA/RNA extrac­tion, southern blot, western blot, gene amplification and gene sequencing.
