Summary of DNA replication
DNA replication is the biological process of producing two identical replicas of DNA from one original DNA molecule. This process occurs in all living organisms and is the basis for biological inheritance. The helical strands are separated and serve as a template for the production of its counterpart, a process referred to as semiconservative replication.
Flashcards on DNA replication
As the parental DNA strands are being unwound in DNA replication, a Y-shaped area called the replication begins to emerge.
