In the mid-1980s, American chemist Kary Mullis developed a method that could make many copies of a stretch of DNA, even when the scientist knew only the sequence of bases at either end of the strand. This technique, called the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which won Mullis the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1993, has become a routine tool used in just about every research, hospital, and criminal evidence laboratory that works with DNA. It allows usable amounts of identical DNA molecules to be produced from a small sample, about the amount found in just a few cells.

The antibiotic is purified from the liquid in which the bacteria grow, and is then chemically modified to make it more useful as a drug. These changes may make the antibiotic less expensive Who Owns Nature’s Medicine Cabinet? Many of the medicines used in the United States come from plants or microorganisms found in the environment. This includes medicines ranging from aspirin to antibiotics and even Taxol, one of the most widely used cancer drugs. Plants and animals were widely used in traditional medicine, and nature’s “medicine cabinet” was the source for many early drugs as chemists learned how to isolate the specific compounds that made medicinal plants useful in treating human illness.
