  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "DNA synthesis" to get these possible sources:

    http://images.google.com/images?q=DNA+synthesis&hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=images&ct=title
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_replication

    http://web.indstate.edu/thcme/mwking/dna.html
    http://www.johnkyrk.com/DNAreplication.html

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. You can also search under "DNA leading lagging."

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
