DNA Replication Quizzes & Trivia

DNA is shaped like a twisted double helix which is composed of long strands of sugars and phosphate groups namely adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine. Replication is the process by which DNA makes a copy of itself during cell division. This quiz will test the knowledge of the DNA shape, how base pairs group together and simple DNA replication facts. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
