Problem 2 Tutorial: 14N distribution after one generationIn the Meselson-Stahl DNA replication experiment, what percent of the DNA was composed of one light strand and one heavy strand after one generation of growth in 14N containing growth media?
Meselson and Stahl's ExperimentMeselson and Stahl in 1957 gave experimental evidence that each DNA strand served as a template for new synthesis, a process called semiconservative replication
DNA of heavy, light, and intermediate densities can be separated by centrifugation.
