About this book

The molecular basis of disease is the driving force in biomedical research. Gene detection, quantification, and localization are required to determine disease pathogenesis. In as much as DNA is the genetic potential in a particular organism, RNA and protein expression are the functional result of this genetic programme. This book describes methods to quantify and localize gene expression, with a particular emphasis on the sensitive detection of low abundance gene expression. Sensitive detection of gene expression has been hindered by poor recovery or preservation of target sequences. The text describes optimized methods to ensure full recovery and preservation of targets from specimen acquisition through detection of specific targets and final analysis. This text also focuses upon in situ analysis of cells and tissues
