Polymerase Chain Reaction

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enables researchers to produce millions of copies of a specific DNA sequence in approximately two hours. This automated process bypasses the need to use bacteria for amplifying DNA.

This animation is featured in our "Spotlight Collection" on Polymerase Chain Reaction, along with video interviews with Kary Mullis, a 3D molecular animation of PCR, and several laboratory protocols.
