i. Replication is a semiconservative process; that is, one strand serves as the template for a new, complementary strand.
ii. Replication requires DNA polymerase plus many other essential cellular enzymes, occurs bidirectionally, and differs in the production of the leading and lagging strands.
On the lab benches, set up your DNA replication models, with your group go through the steps required for replication to occur, include the major players involved. Answer the 12 Analysis questions and be ready to answer questions about your model.
