Translating the Code: Protein Synthesis

Synopsis
Explains how DNA controls all of the forms and functions of an entire organism and how arrangements of only four bases in the DNA molecule can carry the information for all of an organism’s features. This programme uses animated graphics to clarify the complex processes of genetic coding and protein synthesis and explain biology’s central dogma, "one gene—one protein". Investigates some notable exceptions to that rule, particularly Tonegawa’s Nobel Prize-winning solution to the problem of antibody diversity.
