Does anyone know what is the original reference to PCR?

Mullis K, Faloona F, Scharf S, Saiki R, Horn G, Erlich H.

This not quite the original reference; Mullis spoke about his idea to another group and they published before him in Cell. I'd have to look up the reference but Mullis remains the 'inventor' of PCR (and got the Nobel prize).
