    A definition of the term "polymerase chain reaction" is presented. Its purpose is to detect and characterize genes. It refers to an in vitro method for applying a DNA sequence with the use of a heatstale polymerase and two primers. Polymerase chain reaction was introduced in 1985 by Kary Mullis....

    The enhanced thermal diffusivity and mechanical properties of poly( l-lactic acid) (PLLA) nanocomposites reported here are based on the percolation network formed when PLLA is hybridized with short carbon fibers (CFs) and functionalized zinc oxide whiskers. The PLLA nanocomposite containing 30...
