YouTube Video: Molecular Visualizations of DNA

I thought this video was amazing and had to share it. The mechanical processes that make up building and copying DNA, transcribing DNA to RNA, and creating proteins from RNA is incredible, especially when you realize that this happens constantly in every cell bajillions of cells in your body!

Molecular Visualizations of DNA

"Amazing CGI visualization of molecular biology's central dogma. It shows animations of DNA coiling, replication, transcription and translation.
It was created by Drew Berry of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research"

    Yeah.. I didn't really have a clear idea of what was going on there. Narration is key.
    It might be fun to strip off all the narration and have people try to describe what's happening… kind of a "re-narrate this" project.

    I think this is part of a series too.
