Why does DNA replicate?

DNA copies itself before cell division so that each new cell has a full amount of DNA. This is important for making new cells and for passing genetic information from generation to generation. 

How is DNA replicated?

  • Hydrogen bonds between the two polynucleotide strands break. The helix unzips to form
