PCR Prelab

We are starting your last lab of the term, which will be a focus of the final exam.  Now, that I have your attention (but really, this lab will be featured on the final exam), here's what you need to do...

Read about PCR (polymerase chain reaction) here.  Select the bullet point "amplification" and click through the stages.  Take notes on how the process works.  Then watch a animation here of PCR in action.

At the start of class you will have a brief, five question quiz on how PCR works and what is the point of the process.
