I understand that in PCR we're able to amplify only selected portions of the DNA... however despite reading it from multiple sources, I cannot figure out how this selection actually takes place. I ...
I read that mutations are more likely to occur on "the strand that DNA polymerase replicates discontinuously". Does DNA polymerase always go replicate the same strand discontinuously, and if so, ...
I haven't been able to find anything that tells me how much ATP is needed for DNA replication, transcription, and translation in humans, just papers that mention ATP used in those processes. I need ...
When there is an error in copying DNA (a mutation), what exactly goes wrong? If G goes with C and A goes with T, I don't see how that part can mess up. Is the idea that when the double helix is ...
I have read that DNA polymerase requires a primer to bind to the DNA, but I am confused as to why this is the case. When DNA undergoes replication in the cell, there are no primers in the nucleus so ...
