Hi i'm Dani the DNA and I'm about to do my first transcription and translation! Come on inside and I'll show you what it is!
This process is called Transcription!
So first I split in half, kind of like unzipping, then a copy of me called a mRNA is created
After the mRNA is created it leaves the nucleus and goes to the ribosome the ribosome reads the mRNA and tells the tRNA what it needs.
Once it get there,things called tRNA bring over amino acids that ribosome needs to start connecting them to make a protein, the ribosome holds onto the protein until it's ready to be released

After the ribosome reads the last part of the mRNA the ribosome releases the newly created protein!

After the protein is created the ribosome releases it, if the translation and transcription is done correctly, the protein then can fold into the correct shape to do its job.
But this protein did everything just right so we don't need to worry about any mutations! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back soon! I just can't STRAND to be without you!
If the two processes didn't happen properly you get what is called a mutation which makes the protein unable to fold in the shape needed to complete its task.
