Abstract

Advances made within the field of genomics and proteomics have facilitated the emergence of a new era of molecular diagnostics. However, ongoing rapid developments in molecular methodology ensure that this remains a complex field, accessible primarily to scientists who routinely utilize these techniques. For this reason, in this article we provide a concise overview of established and emerging molecular methods and discuss their role as diagnostic adjuncts in Dermatopathology. Important nonmolecular techniques that are used in conjunction with molecular methods are also highlighted.
