 Importance of DNA copying

EXPERT ANSWER

Meetu_M , Meritnation Expert added an answer, on 26/11/10

Dear Student,

DNA replication is an important process that ensure that when cell multiplies, through the mechanisms of mitosis and meiosis, the equal amount of DNA (genetic material) passes in to the new cell. The DNA replicates so that there will be an extra DNA when the cell multiplies, allowing the "daughters" the chance to reproduce.
 
Hope you got the answer.
Cheers!!!
