DNA DETAIL: PART 1

Teachers, Students, Home School Scholars, and Inquiring Minds of all ages --

 In DNA Detail we look at the basic concepts involved in replication of a strand of DNA.  The 4 nucleotides always pair up C with G and A with T.  The DNA strand 'unzips' and free nucleotides find their matches in the exposed strands.  Enzymes then catalyze a reaction covalently bonding the nucleotides into a new strand, that remains attached to one old strand.  It is by this method that each new DNA duplex is identical in sequence to the old DNA duplex.
