Polymerase Chain Reaction: The Past, Present and Future

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR), sometimes described as ‘molecular photocopying’, is a laboratory technique that allows researchers and technicians to amplify DNA or RNA from as little as a single strand. The technology was first created in 1983 by Biochemist [...]

The Story of the Polymerase Chain Reaction

 A recent article, by Maggie Koreth-Baker for Nautilus, details the story of the Polymerase Chain Reaction "from a Pink Squiggle to the Human Genome Project". The article details the discovery of the thermophilic bacterium, Thermus Aquaticus, from which heat-resistant Taq [...]

PCR 101: An introduction to PCR

The polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, was first discovered in 1983 by Kary Mullis. But what is it? It is a method for amplifying small samples of DNA or RNA, creating millions of copies in just a few hours, and [...]

Who invented PCR?

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique, which creates millions of copies of strands of tiny samples of DNA, is now a routine research technique and many labs have a PCR thermal cycler sitting on a bench or in a corner. [...]
