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

    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.
