I am a microbial geochemist and just starting to learn about PCR and other molecular techniques.  I would like to find out about if PCR can be truly quantitative; i.e. what fraction of the DNA of a particular organism is amplified?  And what is PCR
bias?
Could someone point me to the right direction or references.

Thanks a bunch.

Gavin
