    1. Compare the DNA Replication process in cells with the process occurring in the PCR replication.

    DNA replication in the cell occurs at origins of replication. DNA polymerase complexes form at the origins of replications and DNA replication occurs continuously in one direction and in short fragments on the other strand. Other enzymes are involved to unwind the twisted strands of the genomic DNA and to join the short fragments (Okazaki fragments). FOr more information see ...

    Solution Summary

    Paragraph answers to two questions comparing DNA replication and PCR. The questions involve comparing the DNA replication process in cells with PCR replications and compares the eukaryotic and prokaryotic processes of transcription and translation.
