LEGO animation of DNA transcription process

Ali Kuru in biology, lego, Science

Just found an interesting video of DNA transcription process, created with LEGO animation :)

The bright orange subunits are the mRNA nucleotides. In transcription, the single stranded messenger RNA (a copy of the DNA gene) is produced by the base paring rule. The mRNA then exits the nucleus through a pore in the nuclear membrane.
