The paper explains the DNA replication process and how it serves as the main road map for the development of new cells with both old and new characteristics. The paper discusses the development of meiosis, gamete division and the conclusions drawn by Gregor Mendel on genetic determination.

From the Paper:

"DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid is the only commonly found molecule that can dictate its own syntheses through reproduction, for this reason the DNA is the cell structure that dictates genetic material to a new organism. (Carter, 2004, NP) The shape and form of DNA create the ability of it to regenerate in patterned sequences, that are limitedly predictable and there fore result in a new genetic identity, with many of the existing organism's characteristics and some from a new organism, also supplying DNA to the process."
