Semi-conservative Replication

Semi conservative replication is a normal process of DNA synthesis, in which the two original strands of the molecule separate, and each acts as a template on which a new complementary strand is laid down.
The genetic information in a bacterial cell is stored in the form of a double stranded covalently closed circle of DNA; Replication begins at a specific site called the origin. The origin replicates and then DNA replication proceeds in two directions, the two original strands shown as solid lines serve as the templates for synthesis of new strands, shown as dotted line, this refereed to as semi conservative replication
