Translational machinery, which makes proteins in all cells using instructions encoded in the gene. This process involves the ribosome and its interaction with mRNA, tRNA and various protein factors.
This video is from the lab of Venkataraman Ramakrishnan who was Joint-winner of 2009 Nobel Prize for Chemistry. For his work on a neutron-scattering map of the RNA of ribosomes, the protein-making structures in cells. - http://indiaunfinished.wordpress.com/2009/10/07/venkataraman-ramakrishnan/
Here is his lab page:
Ribosome Structure and Function
Ramakrishnan described his work on ribosomes as an attempt to understand “this large molecular machine that takes information from genes and uses it to stitch together protein.”
He said he and others had been using X-ray crystallography to build an “atomic picture of this enormous machine.”
