Building block of DNA is the nucleotide
3. Copying the DNA and each DNA molecule consists of two strands that join together and wrap around each other to form a
DNA polymerase enzyme binds to the RNA primers
Uses nucleotides to synthesize complementary strands of DNA
Always works in one direction – 5’ to 3’ direction
