The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a common tool of molecular biology and is utilized in the field of medical diagnostics to identify genetic disorders and the causative agents of human infections. PCR is also used for typing microorganisms, thus playing an important role in both epidemiology and phylogenetics. The PCR method is a starting point that when used together with cloning is influential in the sequencing of novel genes and genomes.
