DNA Replication and Repair

DNA Replication and Repair

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

DNA replication and repair are important topics for both biological science and medical students. You will need to understand how these mechanisms work before prescribing drugs such as antibiotics and cancer chemotherapies. Here we will cover many topics such as:

  • DNA Polymerases
  • Ligases
  • Proofreading and fidelity
  • Okazaki fragments
  • Telomeres
  • Single Strand Repair Systems

Our high-yield lectures will prepare you for your next exam! Quizzes and lecture reviews will help you retain the information. We want you to not only retain this information, we want you to be able to integrate it into other biochemical topics.
