Molecular Visualization of DNA

[YouTube - Link]

Here is an amazing CGI visualization of DNA coiling, replication, transcription and translation in real time as is occurring every second in our bodies. For me the most fascinating aspect of watching this is the realization of how the production of DNA in our cells is so industrious. It's like watching a souped miniature assembly line working non stop! Created by by Drew Berry of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research.

I love it! When we were learning this stuff in my molecular genetics class the whole process seemed to go so slowly, at least it did in my head, because so many things are happening at once and you had to learn each step of the process in order, one component at a time. This video puts all that activity into real time and it is AWESOME! :-O <--Insert science geek squee here
