Where Translation Happens

Ribosomes are the workers of the cell. They fastidiously stitch together amino acids, with the help of tRNA of course, to make a long polypeptide chain. Since they are the “translator” for DNA code to protein code, ribosomes are (not surprisingly) made out of both nucleic acids and proteins. Purchase this bilingual cell organelle for yourself or for a friend. It also makes a great gift for students studying protein synthesis, cell biologists, biophysicists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
