The basic steps of PCR include:

  1. Denaturation: The double-stranded DNA is heated to a high temperature to separate the two strands.
  2. Annealing: Primers (short DNA sequences) are added to the reaction and annealed to the complementary single-stranded DNA.
  3. Extension: A heat-stable DNA polymerase is added to the reaction and uses the primers as a starting point to synthesize new DNA strands.
