Molecular pathology is an emerging discipline within cell biology and pathology conditions which is focused in the study and diagnosis of disease through the examination of molecules within organs, tissues or body fluids. Molecular pathology relates some aspects of conditions with both anatomic pathology and clinical pathology, molecular biology, biochemistry, proteomics and genetics, and is sometimes considered a "crossover" discipline. It is multi-disciplinary in nature and focuses mainly on the sub-microscopic aspects of disease. A major consideration is that more accurate diagnosis is possible when the diagnosis is based on both the morphologic changes in tissues (traditional anatomic pathology) and on molecular testing.
