how is nucleic acid melting and annealing used to detect one specific DNA sequence in total cellular DNA?

you break the hydrogen bonds between the 2 strands of DNA thus pulling the 2 strands apart. After the DNA is in single strand form it wants to re-anneal with it's complement. If you have a primer in the solution, you can measure if a certain patient has DNA specific to the primer or specific target that you are interested in.
