The forward and reverse primers would be:
5’…GGCTAAGATCTGAATTTTCCGAG......TTGGGCAATAATGTAGCGCCTT …3’
CCGATTCTAGACTTAAAA
---------------------------------------------------------------------
GCAATAATGTAGCGCCTT
3’…CCGATTCTAGACTTAAAAGGCTC.......AACCCGTTATTACATCGCGGAA… 5’
---------------------------------------------------------------------
After one cycle of PCR we get 2 molecules of DNA. So after 6 cycles we get 26 = 64 DNA molecules.
