1 credit

Discussions, demonstrations, and laboratory exercises performed in the clinical laboratory designed to familiarize the student with the principles, procedures, and interpretation of advanced techniques as applied in the molecular pathology laboratory. Students will spend one week in this rotation. Focus will be placed on Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH) analysis, chromosomal abnormalities, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The students will have the opportunity to stain and read slides for FISH analysis, then interpret the results. They will also perform PCR, including extraction and amplification of DNA and analysis of results.
