Definition & key points of Molecular Genetics

TERMS DEFINITIONS
Semi-

conservative replication

The replication in which one strand of the DNA is conserved and the other strand is synthesized according to complementary base pairing is called semi-conservative replication.
RNA primer Short sequence of RNA which is synthesized before replication is called RNA primer
Okazaki fragments. The fragments of DNA which are synthesized along the lagging strand are called Okazaki fragments.
Minimal medium The minimal medium is composed of sugar. ammonia. salts, a few vitamins and water. It is used to grow organisms.
