RNA is essential for various biological roles including coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes. Emerging evidence is accumulating that tumor cells release substantial amounts of RNA into the bloodstream, which strongly resist RNases in the blood. Thus, it is reported that these circulating RNAs Thus, it is reported that these circulating RNAs are upregulated in the serum and plasma of cancer patients.

About the Institute of Medical Molecular Diagnostics GmbH Every day we learn from molecular genetic research that a steadily increasing number of diseases may arise due to a predisposition inherited from our parents, or asquired spontaneously. In other words, diseases which are thought to occur sporadically like for example cancer, or which develop because of life style factors such as heart disease and obesity in fact also originate from a genetic predisposition. In many cases, we might live for years with that predisposition, not knowing that we are at much higher risk of developing a disease than other individuals who do not carry the defective gene. But genetic research not only studies the underlying cause of a disease but also provides tools for its detection and consequently a rationale to deal with the inherited risk.
Molecular diagnostics is a collection of techniques used to analyze biological markers in the genome and proteome , and how their cells express their genes as proteins , applying molecular biology to medical testing. In medicine the technique is used to diagnose and monitor disease, detect risk, and decide which therapies will work best for individual patients,   foreword and in agricultural biosecurity similarly to monitor crop- and livestock disease , estimate risk , and decide what quarantine measures must be taken. By analysing the specifics of the patient and their disease, molecular diagnostics offers the prospect of personalised medicine. The field of molecular biology grew in the late twentieth century, as did its clinical application. In , Yuet Wai Kan et al.
