Laboratory methods are integrated into various aspects of research in infectious disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and environmental epidemiology. Therefore a course focusing on the vocabulary and principles needed to conduct these interdisciplinary efforts should be a welcome addition to the curriculum of most epidemiologic programs. A molecular epidemiology course should familiarize the student with the underlying concepts and jargon of both molecular biology and epidemiology, and build up appreciation for the strengths and develop understanding of the weaknesses of both molecular biology and epidemiology. Therefore, this chapter outlines suggestions for core topics that should be covered in a molecular epidemiology course.
