PCRPCR is the cornerstone of a range of modern scientific disciplines and it is also a key procedure in numerous basic studies involving DNA molecules. All methods for PCR are based on the concept of DNA strand complementarity discovered by James Watson and Francis Crick. PCR became possible with the discovery of DNA polymerases and later their thermostable variants, a variety of isothermal and temperature-cycling amplification techniques have been developed. Little research related to DNA can be performed without the employment of PCR or other DNA amplifi cation procedures.
