...and why is it invaluable? To Modern research and medicine? I can not seem to find it! Please serious answers only thank you!
Could you please expand why it is valuable to modern research and medicine please? Thank you!

PCR allows you to make multiple copies of a gene. You can easily make random mutagenesis libraries. You can make multiple copies of a gene and ligate that gene into a vector and express the gene.
You can also measure gene expression (called qRT-PCR).

PCR is a very valuable tool for molecular biology, not invaluable.

good luck.

i say PCR is invaluable. Reason?
coz if u do research with DNA regardless what method u will come across / utilize PCR. well some ppl will say hey DNA research also use 1.5ml tubes so is that invaluable? i say no coz 1.5ml tubes can be replace by other tools and stuff... but PCR have no substitute? (cross finger)

ouch... i just realize seem to be alot to write... long essay length.

invaluable in medicine coz pcr use in
-detection of causative biology agent
-detected changes of the host (transcription)
-determine whether so so medicine can cause allergy to subject or will it be effective or no change
-enable cloning of insulin and etc etc used as medicine...
-limitless...
-...
