PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is a technique that is central to molecular biology research. Developed by Kerry Mullis in 1983, this technique revolutionized genetic research, opening many doors to new applications in medicine and biotechnology. For this, the Nobel prize was awarded to Mullis for development of this empowering tool. PCR is currently used in a variety of applications ranging from cloning, gene expression analysis, genotyping, sequencing, resequencing, and mutagenesis. PCR is also used in diagnostics for infectious diseases and in forensic investigation.
