This is a one page site that explains the principle of polymerase chain
reaction. This site can be downloaded in pdf format. There is also a link to an
animation of the process, which should help students better understand what is
occuring. This site may be useful if you are teaching a class where
understanding pcr is important, but where there is insufficient or no
information in the course text.
