DNA replication is the process of producing two identical replicas from one original DNA molecule. This biological process occurs in all living organisms and is the basis for biological inheritance. DNA is made up of two strands and each strand of the original DNA molecule serves as template for the production of the complementary strand, a process referred to as semiconservative replication. Cellular proofreading and error-checking mechanisms ensure near perfect fidelity for DNA replication. DNA replication can also be performed in vitro (artificially, outside a cell). DNA polymerases isolated from cells and artificial DNA primers can be used to initiate DNA synthesis at known sequences in a template DNA molecule. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a common laboratory technique, cyclically applies such artificial synthesis to amplify a specific target DNA fragment from a pool of DNA. When the replication process is complete, two DNA molecules â€” identical to each other and identical to the original â€” have been produced. Each strand of the original molecule has remained intact as it served as the template for the synthesis of a complementary strand. This mode of replication is described as semi-conservative: one-half of each new molecule of DNA is old; one-half new. Watson and Crick had suggested that this was the way the DNA would turn out to be replicated. Proof of the model came from the experiments of Meselson and Stahl. The process of Chromosomal Replication in bacteria is complex. Bacterial chromosomes are doubleâ€stranded DNA and almost always circular. DNA replication starts at a specific sequence, the origin, on the chromosome and proceeds in two directions towards another specific region, the terminus.Number of Upcoming conferences/Workshops/Symposiums are 5 in number.Around 5 companies are there which actively involved in the process of replication and its research.
