The template strand is the strand of DNA, opposite the coding strand, to which DNA polymerase (in cell division) or RNA polymerase (in transcription) adds either DNA or RNA nucleotides respectivley. The polymerases move down the template strand in the 3' to 5' direction thus creating a new complimentary strand reading in the 5' to 3' direction[1].
