DNA

DNA semi-conservative replication (one parent strand and a new strand)  and making new copies

HideShow resource information
DNA replication
DNA replicates so that two identical daughter chromatids can be formed with exactly the same genetic information. This takes place during Interphaseof the cell cycle.
1 of 6
semi-conservative replication
one replicated strand is the parent strand and the other is a new strand
2 of 6
Anti-parallel
strands in DNA run in opposite directions to each other, the sugars point in opposite directions
3 of 6
complementary base pairing
These bases are always join via hydrogen bonds A-T G-C A-U
4 of 6
Transcription
copying of DNA into molecules of mRNA
5 of 6
Translation
tRNA molecules deliver specific amino acids to the ribosomes, in order to make the primary structure
