Enzymatic Amplification of DNA by PCR: Standard Procedures and Optimization Protocol Method for amplifying DNA enzymatically by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), including procedures to quickly determine conditions for successful amplification of the sequence and primer sets of interest, and to optimize for specificity, sensitivity, and yield. The first step of PCR simply entails mixing template DNA, two appropriate oligonucleotide primers, Taq or other thermostable DNA polymerases, deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs), and a buffer.
Genetic Engineering with PCR Protocol Method describes how to modify the termini of PCR products by introducing restriction sites and other features. To reduce the chance of contamination with exogenous DNAs, prepare and use a special set of reagents and solutions for PCR only. Bake all glassware for 6 hours at 150°C and autoclave all plasticware.
PCR Amplification of Highly GC-Rich Regions Protocol Procedure details the establishment of an amplification procedure for GC-rich sequences. The DNA fragments of interest are amplified in the presence of either 5% DMSO, 1 M betaine, 2 M betaine, 1 M betaine, and 5% DMSO; 2 M betaine and 5% DMSO; 0.4 M tetramethylene sulfone; or without any of the enhancers.

PCR Program Design The requirement of an optimal PCR reaction is to amplify a specific locus without any unspecific by-products. Therefore, annealing needs to take place at a sufficiently high temperature to allow only the perfect DNA-DNA matches to occur in the reaction. P
