    We don't need DNA polymerase to get together, that's biology and we already have chemisty

    I KNOW IT'S STUPID. But someone just told me the helicase and unzipping jeans/genes joke so I thought of the polymerase side of DNA 😂 please don't judge me and just let me know I've used the correct enzyme lol

    Well, DNA polymerase is one of the enzymes, it adds the nucleotides to the DNA being synthesised and then DNA ligase forms the phosphodiester bonds between nucleotides... doesn't quite have the same ring to it as your joke though

    Also, it is kind of biochemistry, so the second part of your joke doesn't quite work from a scienctific point of view. But if you're using that to pick up a girl/boy then I don't think they're going to be focusing too much on the science tbh

    Oh and also, I would not recommend using that as a chat up line

    Hey AortaStudyMore, I wish I was adenine so I could get paired with U
