Kay so these are the strands of DNA
5' C C A G T A G T T 3'
3' G G T C A T C A A 5'
Let's say the DNA molecule above were the parent strand of DNA. when the strands are split for replication, which strand would be the template for the leading strand? And can you also please explain how you can tell which one is the template.
The second question is, How do base pairing rules make DNA replication possible?
I also need to know what are Okazaki fragments and why they are needed.
Please help? It would be greatly appreciated :)
