Concept #1: The Steps of PCR

Concept #2: 1) Denaturation

Practice: Which of the following correctly lists the steps in order for one cycle of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)?

Practice: Why is a DNA polymerase from a thermophilic bacterium used in PCR?

Practice: PCR is known for its power of amplifying a target DNA sequence at a high speed. Each cycle can double the number of DNA molecules (target sequence). Which of the following is CORRECT regarding PCR?

Practice: If you start with one double-stranded DNA molecule and you perform SIX cycles of PCR, how many double- stranded copies of the DNA will you have?
