Review PCR Chapter 6
Enduring Understandings: 1.Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a powerful tool that allows scientists to produce billions of copies of DNA or a gene sequence
in a short period of time for their further study. 2.PCR has enabled scientists to analyze DNA sequences to determine their genomes. 3.Genetic modifications in
foods can be detected using PCR.
Essential Questions: 1. How does the polymerase chain reaction work? 2.How does PCR facilitate research in the genetics field? 3.How can genetically modified
foods be detected using PCR?
