How does DNA replication work?



Im learning about DNA replication in my grade 12 Bio class and I’m so lost

In: Biology

The DNA strands are separated, a short primer anneals to either ends of the replication fork, and polymerase adds the bases from there. If you can understand which direction the fork is unwinding, then you can figure out which strand is continuous vs. non-continuous replication. As someone pointed out, just find a Youtube video on it, it definitely makes more sense visually

Aren’t there any good videos on Youtube? This is a pretty basic (though sometimes somewhat confusing) and frequently discussed topic. There should be plenty of material.
