Explain the replication process thoroughly. What does it mean to have a lagging and leading strand? Why do these two strands exist? How do DNA polymerase, DNA ligase, helicase, primers, and Okazaki fragments contribute to replication? How does replication differ from transcription and translation?

Replication of DNA molecules is a very complex process and very important process. All life processes, how we know, are based on this process. This process is carried out prior to each of cell division and subsequent to the division of each of the two chromatids of chromosomes.
The process begins by rolling out the DNA strand (DNA is a double helix), and its resolution. At each the parent chain (which serves as a mold or a matrix) is synthesized a new chain, which is complementary to the parent’s chains, which makes it easier to copy. The existence of the two strands of DNA is very important because makes easier and faster replication (to copy / doubling) and at the same time allows reducing the incidence of possible errors during the replication....
