Colorful animation and microphotography are used in this fifteen-minute program, which examines the way in which DNA acts as the cell's master molecule. Students discover how DNA stores the cell's instructions in the unique biological language called the genetic code and find out how DNA copies itself before cells divide. The concept of the gene is explored and students will follow the flow of information inside the living cell from DNA to RNA to protein. Teachers will find this program to be invaluable in presenting what is often a difficult and confusing subject.
