PCR PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) is based upon an in vitro DNA polymerase reaction. A thermostable DNA polymerase (most commonly from Thermus aquaticus ) is used. This allows you to anneal primers to the target DNA (primers are sequences of ~20 bp that match the target), extend the primers, denature (melt) the DNA, and repeat the process a number of times (often 30 to 35 times).
