The following is a video in five parts, of which the
The first part is interesting, but the second, third, and fourth parts are truly mind-boggling. The second part shows an emulation of DNA replication. The third part shows an emulation of transcription, where a strand of messenger RNA (mRNA) is created from a strand of DNA. The fourth part shows translation, where a ribosome creates a protein by reading a strand of messenger RNA. The fifth part of the video seems less interesting. I don't know what is happening in that segment, and I always skip it. Click here.
