Figure 6: PCR of insulin-like growth factor
Figure 7: Hairpin loops and primer dimers
Figure 8: The vector is supplied in a linearised form ready for ligation to the insert
Figure 9: An EcoRI restriction site has been added so the PCR product can be digested and ligated to a cloning vector cut with the same enzyme.

Figure 18: (1) Father. (2) Child. (3) Mother. The child has inherited some, but not all, of the fingerprint of each of its parents, giving it a new, unique fingerprint.
Figure 19: Cloning a gene using PCR.
Figure 20: DNA Shuffling: Random mutagenesis by PCR. The DNA is digested at random using DNaseI. The resulting fragments are denatured and used in PCR. At the annealing stage random complementary fragments bind.
Figure 21: Error prone polymerase mutagenesis. PCR is carried out using buffers which differ as shown.
