Leader And Lagging Strands.....

a: Dna replication lagging strand ~
b: driving down a street with a stop sign every 5 ft

What: "There are two types of strands DNA polymerase replicates. There are the leading strands and lagging strands. The leading strand is replicated smoothly, while the lagging strand is like driving down a street with a stop sign every five feet. The lagging strand must be replicated in small single strands, while DNA ligase combines the stand together." The article is a fairly clear and creative description of DNA replication.
