Molecular biology

Molecular biology encompasses all the techniques that permit the analysis of DNA and the RNA, the "media" of genetic information.
The nucleic structures proper to each species have numerous applications in human health:

  • Detection of pathogens in infections (presence of bacteria, viruses and yeasts)
  • Identification of anti-biotic resistant mechanisms
  • Quantification of blood virus load (viraemia for HIV or hepatitis)
  • Detection of cancer cells and quantification of residual disease
