Description

The genetic code is incredible. This video explains how the 'language' of DNA actually works. Sections of chromosomes called genes hold the information required to produce a protein. This information is in the form of the bases A, T, C & G. Every three bases codes for one amino acid and is called a codon. The codons are transcribed into mRNA and then translated into sequences of amino acids (proteins). For more Biology video lessons check out www.anytimeeducation.com
