      hello, can anyone help me out by telling the difference between molecular assay and molecular techniques?
      and what are the modern molecular assays involved for infectious diseases?
      Thanks.

      Molecular assays are tests for the presence of particular molecule.
      Molecular techniques can be assays or other manipulations, such as restricting (cutting) and ligating (pasting) DNA.
      Some examples of molecular assays useful in detecting infectious disease include:
      polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
      enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA)
      Western blotting
      Wikipedia is generally a good starting place to read some background on these sorts of assays (http://www.wikipedia.org).
