Cytotaxonomy: Study of Chromosome Behaviour

Chromosome behaviour is an important factor that determine the pattern of variation and taxonomic distinctness. Pairing behavior and subsequent separation of chromosome occurs at meiosis. In reporting results of pairing studies, univalents are represented by Is, bivalents by IIs, etc. Some taxonomic information can be gained from the study of …

Replication in Circular DNA: Theta Model

Following Meselson and Stahl’s work, investigators confirmed that other organisms also use semiconservative replication. There are, however, several different ways that semiconservative replication can take place, differing principally in the nature of the template DNA—whether it is linear or circular—and in the number of replication forks. Replicon and Origin of …
