Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Molecular Epidemiology
Molecular epidemiology is a branch of epidemiology that uses molecular biology techniques, such as DNA sequencing, to study the spread and transmission of pathogens in a population. In healthcare, molecular epidemiology is used to track and control outbreaks of infectious diseases, identify the source of an infection, and determine how a pathogen is evolving over time. This information can help healthcare professionals make decisions about infection control measures, public health interventions, and the development of new treatments and vaccines. Additionally, molecular epidemiology can also be applied to the study of chronic diseases such as cancer to understand the genetic and molecular basis of disease progression and treatment response.
