Transcription and Translation
By mshaw21, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
First, the DNA is unzipped.
Then, an mRNA strand is built as a copy of a gene. This process is called Transcription.
The new mRNA is used as a recipe to build a protein. A ribosome reads the recipe.
tRNA's bring over amino acids, and the ribosome attaches them in the correct order. This process is called Translation.
If there is a mistake during either of these processes, the protein won't be able to fulfill its purpose, causing major problems for the organism.
But if both of the processes are completed succesfully, a protein will be created!
