About the course
The course will provide insight into molecular diagnostic methods' applications, strategies and implications in research and medicine. Different methods for protein analysis, including a variety of affinity-based protein detection methods like Proximity ligation assays (PLA) and affibodies will be illustrated. Molecular tools and technologies used in the Human Proteome Project, e.g. high-throughout in situ detection of protein expression in different tissues and cancers will also be illustrated. The development of novel molecular methods for diagnosing diseases, including nanotechnology-based diagnostics, and their application in medical clinics will be discussed.
