dna replication

Dear Student,

  • DNA replication is the phenomenon in which a duplicate copy of DNA is synthesised.

  • In replication, two strands of the DNA helix separate and each strand acts as a template for synthesising new complementary strands.

  • After completion of replication, the two copies so produced will have one parental and one newly synthesised strand. This scheme of replication is called semi-conservative replication.
     

Hope this helps,

Cheers !!
