Learning Exercise: Polymerase Chain Reaction
This module introduces the math behind PCR reactions and precedes a second module on quantitative PCR. The PCR reaction is best described as an exponential growth function.
Course: Molecular Biology
Date Last Modified:
There are two files. The first is a powerpoint tutorial that students can use to generate a spreadsheet simulating PCR amplification. The second is an excel spreadsheet with the finished product.
