For System 6.x - System 7.0 - 7.6

This Macintosh software is for use in designing, analyzing, and simulating experiments involving the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). PCR is a technique used by molecular biologists to amplify highly selected segments of DNA. If you never heard of PCR, you probably have no use for this program.

To use Amplify you must supply the sequences of the primers and the target DNA. The software then analyzes the combination of primers and target sequence you have chosen to determine what portions of the target are likely to be amplified. The result is a graphical map of the target sequence, primer binding sites and amplified fragments. The program also provides various bits of helpful information about the reaction products, primer binding sites, potential dimer formation, etc., that can help in planning a PCR experiment and designing primers.
