This streamlined "essential" version of the Molecular Pathology
(2009) textbook extracts key information, illustrations and
photographs from the main textbook in the same number and
organization of chapters. It is aimed at teaching students in
courses where the full textbook is not needed, but the concepts
included are desirable (such as graduate students in allied health
programs or undergraduates). It is also aimed at students who are
enrolled in courses that primarily use a traditional pathology
textbook, but need the complementary concepts of molecular
pathology (such as medical students). Further, the textbook will be
valuable for pathology residents and other postdoctoral fellows who
desire to advance their understanding of molecular mechanisms of
disease beyond what they learned in medical/graduate school.
Offers an essentialintroduction to molecular genetics and the
"molecular" aspects of human diseaseTeaches from the perspective of
"integrative systems biology," which encompasses the intersection
of all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to understanding
human diseaseIn-depth presentation of the principles and practice
of molecular pathology: molecular pathogenesis, molecular
mechanisms of disease, and how the molecular pathogenesis of
disease parallels the evolution of the disease using
histopathology. "Traditional" pathology section provides
state-of-the-art information on the major forms of disease, their
pathologies, and the molecular mechanisms that drive these
diseases.Explains the practice of "molecular medicine" and the
translational aspects of molecular pathology: molecular
diagnostics, molecular assessment, and personalized medicineStudent
web site hosts "self-assessment" questions; Professor web site
hosts all figures from bookEach chapter ends with Key Summary
