I’m trying to study for my Biology course and I need some help to understand this question.
This assignment consists of two questions. Each of your responses should be one or more paragraphs long, depending upon the depth of the question. An answer consisting of only a few short sentences is insufficient, and will receive a poor grade. Please include references where appropriate.

- Describe the early models of DNA replication that were investigated and explain how research by Meselson and Stahl supported the current model. Explain the role of each of the following in DNA replication:
- RNA primer
- DNA polymerase
- Okazaki fragments
- DNA ligase.
