Conservative replication

In this mode of replication, out of the two double helices formed, one would be entirely of old material (parental DNA) and the other entirely of new material. Thus, the old parent double helix would remain unchanged.

Semiconservative replication

In this mode of replication proposed by Watson and Crick, each strand of the two double helices formed would have one old and one new strand.
