Polymerase Chain Reaction (Definition)

Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

It is very difficult to grow in culture because unlike most bacteria, it cannot survive outside of mammalian cells (i.e. On a petri dish), thus it is considered an obligate parasite. It has limited metabolic capacity, and cannot synthesize many biomolecules, which it requires from a living host. This has posed a hurdle for researchers. ...Read more
