Methods in molecular biology molecular biology, scientific study of the molecular basis of life processes, including cellular respiration, excretion, and reproduction. The term molecular biology was coined in 1938 by Warren Weaver, then director of the natural sciences program at the Rockefeller ; 402


Contributors in bioinformatics, molecular genetics molecular genetics
The branch of genetics that deals with hereditary transmission and variation on the molecular level.
, and computer science describe basic and specialized approaches for polymerase chain reaction polymerase chain reaction (pŏl`ĭmərās') (PCR), laboratory process in which a particular DNA segment from a mixture of DNA chains is rapidly replicated, producing a large, readily analyzed sample of a piece of DNA; the process is  (PCR) primer design. The methods can be used for both genome-scale experiments and for small-scale individual PCR amplifications. Material is in sections on basic principles and software, genome-scale PCR primer design, multiplex PCR primer design, allele-specific PCR, long PCR primer design, and DNA methylation mapping. The book will be useful as a reference for organizations performing whole genome studies, companies designing instruments that utilize PCR, and individual scientists--geneticists, molecular biologists, and molecular geneticists--who routinely use PCRA PCRA Petroleum Conservation Research Association
