It all starts with DNA. DNA is a double stranded gene that lives and stays in the nucleus.
During transcription, DNA unzips and copies one half of itself. the copy is called mRNA. The DNA then zips itself back up
So now there is an mRNA ready to leave the nucleus and head to the ribosome
Bye Mini me!
During translation, the ribosomes reads the mRNA and tRNA is used to bring the amino acids together. The amino acids are attached to make a protein.
So now you have a protein
If something goes wrong in either transcription or translation, the organism will most likely be damaged
Everything went right
Something went wrong
