Title in English: Introduction to molecular medicine. Practicum (biomarker studies)
Molecular medicine is a modern and rapidly expanding discipline, which covers all applications of molecular biology in the clinical medicine. For this reason, it is a field in its essence, a very broad and universal, and therefore difficult to handle for one expert. However, if we look at all areas of molecular medicine from a broader perspective we can see that there are certain recurring patterns. It is basically about a way of thinking and, thus, concept of this discipline could be handled and described. This textbook introduces the readers to the basic knowledge, methodological principles and methods of molecular biology that allow them to understand both the meaning and purpose of this field as well as its multidisciplinary nature. Therefore, it should present a useful tool not only for students of molecular medicine courses, but also provide useful information to other specialists interested in this issue among the wide expert public.
