DNA replication occurs from 5' to 3', complementary to the template.
Given Strand: 3' – ATATCCAAGTC – 5'
Can you identify the bases that will be added to this parent strand during DNA replication?
Now that you have identified the sequence of the daughter strand based on the sequence on the parent strand, can you come up with an equation that explains the relative proportions of each base in a DNA macromolecule?
