The DNA of higher animals replicates by an interesting mechanism. Enzymes recognise specific sites randomly scattered on the molecule and establish a bidirectional process of unwinding and replication from these sites. We investigate the limiting distribution of the completion time for this process by considering related coverage problems investigated by Janson (1983) and Hall (1988).
