Why is PCR so revolutionary? Describe two applications of PCR.

Summary Introduction

To describe: The reasons behind the revolutionary concept of PCR.

Introduction: A process of molecular biology which is responsible for the production of various copies of a particular segment of DNA is called “polymerase chain reaction (PCR).” Using the technique of PCR, a single segment of DNA can be amplified to produce a sufficient number of copies of that particular segment.

Explanation of Solution

A technique known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has revolutionized and in number of cases has replaced the concept of host-cell interaction cloning. The process of PCR represents a type of DNA replication in which parts of DNA molecules are copied, rather than the whole DNA molecule.

The process of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) utilizes two parts comprising single DNA strand which serves as a template and the DNA primers which are joined to either side of DNA to be copied. The primers serve as a beginning point in the process and are responsible for the synthesis of a new DNA strand...
