From DNA to Protein

Embedded below is an excellent video animation of protein synthesis, the process of turning DNA in to proteins in your body (proteins make your muscles, bones, hormones, enzymes etc). The best from the web in my opinion. It details how the genetic code relates to the production of a specific protein and illustrates transcription and translation superbly. This video would be an excellent introduction to protein synthesis for leaving cert biology pupils.
