ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
On behalf of the Organisers, DNA Diagnostics, 2011, we take great pleasure in inviting you to the Hand’s on workshop on DNADiagnostics, 2011. The aim of this workshop is to update post-graduates, research scholars, pediatricians and gynecologist with the latest molecular techniques for the identification of genetic disorders.
This will help the participants to understand theoretical background and practical approaches with various applications. This is a golden opportunity to learn advanced techniques at affordable cost to apply and inculcate this knowledge in various applied areas of diagnostic research activities to be in forefront.

The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Can Make Millions of Copies of DNA in a Short Time
- The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a rapid way of amplifying (duplicating) specific DNA sequences
- Method was devised by Kary Mullis of Cetus Corporation, Emeryville
- He recieved a $20,000 bonus and later a Nobel Prize
- Later the patent was sold to Hoffman-LaRoche for $300,000,000
- DNA heated to high temperature is not destroyed; separates into single strands, but reforms helix when cooled
- PCR Method:
- DNA to be amplified is put into solution containing:
- Short DNA “primers” which can bind to the 3′ ends of the DNA
