A New Study Just Solved One of The Greatest Mysteries of DNA Replication

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Replication is nature’s greatest magic trick. Watch closely, and before your very eyes you’ll see a single cell blur into two virtually identical copies. Presto.

After more than half a century of research on molecular genetics, it would be easy to assume we’ve had this biological sleight-of-hand all figured out — but it’s not the case.

Now, by applying cutting edge technology, researchers have uncovered crucial details showing how DNA times its own replication.
