PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is developed by Kary Mullis in mid 1980's and it has made development of modern molecular biology possible through DNA oligo sequence. The commonly used DNA polymerase in PCR method is Taq DNA polymerase. In the beginning, the enzyme used in PCR method was E. coli DNA polymerase, but the enzyme had to be added at every step of the process due to its thermal instability.
Therefore, DNA polymerase is developed from Thermus aquaticus bacteria which thrives in hot spa. Taq DNA polymerase optimally compose DNA at 72, therefore it could stably amplify a specified oligo sequence without adding enzyme at every cycle due to its thermal stability even at 94.

Taq DNA polymerase is the recombinant form of the enzyme from the thermophilic Thermus aquaticus, expressed in E. coli. The enzyme is highly purified and is free of non-specific endonuclease or exonuclease. Taq DNA polymerase consists of a single polypeptide chain with a molecular weight of approximately 95kD. It is a highly processive 5'-3' DNA polymerase lacking 3'-5' exonuclease activity.
