1. To understand how DNA
replicates; this involves knowing the complimentary base-pairing of the
DNA sequences, and that replication is "semi-conservative".
2. To know the different
types of replication possible for circular and linear DNA molecules.
3. To be able to describe the different types of proteins involved in DNA replication. In particular, you should know the purposes of the following proteins:
- SSB proteins
- DNA Polymerase III
- RNA Primase
- DNA ligase
