DNA Replication

 Simple Schooling DNA Replication begins the high school biology’s student’s study of how DNA works.  If your teen learns but one topic in high school science, then the central dogma of molecular biology would be it.  This is the first in a 3 part course on DNA replication, transcription, and translation.  In this unit students will learn the mechanism for replication and repair as well as the primary players that make it all possible.  They will complete several vocabulary exercises and will be quizzed on the experimental procedure used to identify the replication process as well as the steps involved.
