PCR Theory

Molecular Diagnostics
Edited by: Jim Huggett and Justin O'Grady
The application of molecular technology in clinical diagnosis in two key diagnostic areas: cancer and infectious diseases.
I would highly recommend this book (Doodys) read more ...
Real-Time PCR
Edited by: Nick A. Saunders and Martin A. Lee
Provides both the novice and experienced user with an invaluable reference to a wide-range of real-time PCR technologies and applications and supplies detailed technical insights into the underlying principles, methods and practice of real-time PCR.
"an invaluable reference" (Doodys); "wide range of real time PCR technologies" (Food Sci Technol Abs) read more ...
Legacy PCR theory The Theory of Legacy PCR

By legacy PCR we mean the original, traditional PCR performed in a tube. When the reaction is complete the products of the reaction (the amplified DNA fragments) are analysed and visualised by gel electrophoresis. For more detailed information see PCR Basic Theory ...

Real-Time PCR theory The Theory of Real-Time PCR

Real-time PCR is achieved by the use of fluorescent dyes that can be measured by a detection system. This also permits the quantitation of the DNA. For more detailed information about real-time PCR please see Real-Time PCR Theory ...

Principle of PCR The Principle of PCR

PCR consists of an exponential amplification of a DNA fragment, and its principle is based on the mechanism of DNA replication in vivo: dsDNA is denatured to ssDNA, duplicated, and this process is repeated along the reaction according to a specific formula. For a more detailed treatment of the principle of PCR please see The Principle of PCR ...
