Molecular Biology

Molecular Biology 

Researchers in veterinary science increasingly need to make use of molecular biological techniques in their studies. Knowledge of an organism at the molecular level is required for many applications, for example:

  • Identification and characterization of pathogens
  • Development of molecular diagnostic tests
  • Molecular phylogenetics
  • Development of recombinant vaccines
  • Parentage analysis.

Complete genome sequences of many pathogens are starting to become available and will allow tremendous advances in studying their biology and in improving the diagnosis and control of parasites.
