Does DNA replication take place in the same direction along both strands of the DNA molecule that is being replicated?
Yes, it takes place at both ends.
At the end of DNA replication how many new strands of DNA are there?
At the end of Dna replication two new strands of dna have been formed giving a total of four strands of dna ...

Which type of replication takes place in DNA?
DNA replication is called semi-conservative - as the new DNA that is created contains one old strand and one new strand. When DNA replicates, the existing strands separate and act as a template for the new strand to be created. ...
Differences between transcription and DNA replication?
In transcription, complementary strands of RNA are made by RNA polymerase. In DNA replication, DNA unwinds and forms a replication fork so that new strands of DNA can be synthesized by DNA polymerase. ...

What is the purpose of creating DNA strands during DNA replication?
The newly created Dna strands after Replication are identical copies of each other; the purpose being Reproduction. ...
Asked in Genetics
Why DNA replication considered semiconservative replication?
When DNA replicates, the two strands become four strands, or two new bands of DNA. 2 of these strands are the originals, while 2 are completely new. That's why it's called semi-conservative. Replication "recycles" the DNA. ...
The first step of DNA replication is the separation of the what?
DNA replication begins at the "origin of replication" in which the enzyme Helicase untwists the parental DNA strands. ...
