PCR RAP

submitted by: zach.cp
a rap about the Polymerase Chain Reaction that highlights a few things: *the beautiful way in which DNA is copied (using enzymes called Polymerases), *the great insight of Kary Mullis to create a useful tool that could copy DNA in monumental, exponential manner (using primers and heating/cooling cycles). * the human interest side of discovery: the first guy to invent a new technology may just end up with a Nobel Prize, and, should he/she choose, end up riding down Rodeo Drive with movie...
