DNA carries genetic information to produce proteins and build new cells: a process at the heart of all life on Earth.
- Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) carry the genetic code required to make protein within cells.
- When a cell makes a protein the instructions are copied from part of the DNA strand and transcribed to new molecule, called RNA.
- RNA molecules carry the instruction from the nucleus to ribosomes.
- Ribosomes are factories within the cells producing protein from amino acid.
