Molecular Diagnostics Tutorial



..and welcome to the molecular diagnostics tutorial

We will use three case studies to highlight the potential uses of molecular diagnostic tools in a clinical setting.

Here you will learn the basic principles of molecular diagnosis, looking for drug resistant isolates and typing unknown fungi using sequencing. The tutorial is intended as a reference for future study. During the workshop try to work through the three cases and use the information buttons only when you need to.

Start with case 1 to learn some basic principles of molecular diagnostics.

You can get back to this page or get help on a variety of molecular topics using the toolbar on the left


CASE 1 Molecular diagnosis of Aspergillosis

CASE 2 Rapid detection of drug resistant Candida

CASE 3 Identification of an unknown fungal pathogen
