One of the most heralded developments in basic science to reach clinical application in recent years has been the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). PCR has been applied in various areas of clinical medicine including rapid diagnosis of viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic disease, the diagnosis and prediction of inherited disease, the detection of an association between certain viruses and specific cancers, the detection of organ transplant rejection and HLA subtyping. In basic research PCR is useful in identification of point mutation, deletion, insertions, rearrangements, amplifications and translocations.
