Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR is a powerful method for amplifying particular segments of DNA, distinct from cloning and propagation within the host cell. This procedure is carried out entirely biochemically, that is, in vitro. PCR was invented by Kary Mullis in He shared the Nobel Prize in chemistry with Michael Smith in This breaks the weak hydrogen bonds that hold DNA strands together in a helix, allowing the strands to separate creating single stranded DNA.
Sometimes called "molecular photocopying," the polymerase chain reaction PCR is a fast and inexpensive technique used to "amplify" - copy - small segments of DNA. Because significant amounts of a sample of DNA are necessary for molecular and genetic analyses, studies of isolated pieces of DNA are nearly impossible without PCR amplification. Often heralded as one of the most important scientific advances in molecular biology, PCR revolutionized the study of DNA to such an extent that its creator, Kary B. Mullis, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in PCR is also valuable in a number of laboratory and clinical techniques, including DNA fingerprinting, detection of bacteria or viruses particularly AIDS , and diagnosis of genetic disorders. Next, an enzyme called "Taq polymerase" synthesizes - builds - two new strands of DNA, using the original strands as templates. This process results in the duplication of the original DNA, with each of the new molecules containing one old and one new strand of DNA.
Genetic research has exploded in recent decades with emerging technologies, breakthroughs in sequencing and the advancing sophistication of PCR. This brief overview examines a few applications or areas of genetic research and how PCR is used in these types of research. As the field of genetic research has branched out, so too has PCR. Tailored variations of PCR have now been developed and employed to validate research, to be a primary tool for search or for up and downstream analysis. What is genotyping: Genotyping uses sequencing information to determine genetic differences or variants in individuals or in biological populations.
The characterization of the diversity of species living within ecosystems is of major scientific interest to understand the functioning of these ecosystems. It is also becoming a societal issue since it is necessary to implement the conservation or even the restoration of biodiversity. Historically, species have been described and characterized on the basis of morphological criteria, which are closely linked by environmental conditions or which find their limits especially in groups where they are difficult to access, as is the case for many species of microorganisms.
Arch Neurol. Polymerase chain reaction PCR is a broadly applied laboratory test for the diagnosis of a wide variety of central nervous system CNS diseases, including genetic and autoimmune diseases, malignant neoplasms, and infections. In addition, PCR can be performed on a variety of tissues preserved in different ways—even archival specimens can be used to provide important epidemiological information.

Мидж, - беззвучно выдавил он, - черт тебя дери. В шифровалке все в порядке! - Телефон не унимался. Джабба принялся устанавливать на место новый чип.
В руке его поблескивал пистолет. Беккер, отступая к стене, вновь обрел способность мыслить четко и ясно. Он почувствовал жжение в боку, дотронулся до больного места и посмотрел на руку. Между пальцами и на кольце Танкадо была кровь. У него закружилась голова. Увидев выгравированные знаки, Беккер страшно удивился. Он совсем забыл про кольцо на пальце, забыл, для чего приехал в Севилью.
И они еще решили оставить меня здесь на ночь. Беккер огляделся: - Понимаю. Это ужасно.
