There are only minor criticisms; there could have been a greater emphasis placed on where and how to access molecular medicine information not only from a basic science perspective (this is covered briefly in the bioinformatics chapter) but from a clinical perspective by referencing summaries and reviews; few sections on how to interpret, integrate and apply molecular science research and techniques to patients at the bedside, particularly in resource-limited settings, would have been useful; the index lacked adequate detail and consequently easily looking up different topics proved difficult--this might be refined in future editions.
