Detection and determination of some viruses and the knowledge of their genome is inextricably linked to a reaction carried out by a thermostable enzyme: Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) that was visualized during the 1980s in the United States and its invention has been so important that some separated in time in reference to advances in Medicine/Biology as before and after the PCR. The foregoing, without a doubt, constitutes an immeasurable advance in Human and Animal Medicine. It would be enough to turn on some audiovisual news media or read a written medium to find out how the real epidemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 called COVID19 has developed and the detection of the viral agent or how we have found out about the current omicron variant.
