Medical Definition of DNA replication

1. The process whereby a copy of a DNA molecule is made and thus the genetic information it contains is duplicated. The parental double stranded DNA molecule is replicated semi conservatively, i.e. Each copy contains one of the original strands paired with a newly synthesised strand that is complementary in terms of at and GC base pairing. Though in this sense conceptually simple, mechanistically a complex process involving a number of enzymes.
