Annotation
the discipline; also used for epidemiologic application of molecular biology (NIM, no qualifiers); prefer specific epidemiologic concept & specific molecular or genetic concept (IM) coordinated with main headings /‌epidemiol (IM) & /‌genet (IM), as "molecular epidemiology of rabies virus in France" = RABIES VIRUS /‌genet (IM) + RNA, VIRAL /‌genet (NIM) (molecular aspect from text) + RABIES /‌epidemiol (IM) (epidemiologic aspect from text) + FRANCE /‌epidemiol (NIM)
Scope Note
The application of molecular biology to the answering of epidemiological questions. The examination of patterns of changes in DNA to implicate particular carcinogens and the use of molecular markers to predict which individuals are at highest risk for a disease are common examples.
