30 Years of PCR History

From its birth Polymerase Chain Reaction, PCR, changed the molecular biology world. In 1983 Kary Mullis conceived the concept of PCR while driving along Highway 128, en route to Mendocino County. While working at Cetus Corporation, Kary Mullis uses a SAM I DNA synthesizer from Biosearch to test his hypothesis, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Watch the progression of PCR from its conception to advancements that are breaking ground into new and exciting applications.
