  • Its not A. The amount of DNA used in PCR does not matter, as long as some DNA is present.

    Because PCR is a process that requires knowledge of DNA structure, primers, and the way DNA enzymes work, the answer would most likely by B, what other scientists had discovered about the structure of DNA. Knowing the structure of DNA, and how it works, would be essential to developing PCR
