Molecular Animation - from genomic information to protein synthesis

A video on the inner workings of the cell.  See the molecular machinery in action.

The movie "The Central Dogma: From Genomic Information to Protein Synthesis" is made by RIKEN Omics Science Center (RIKEN OSC) for the exhibition titled "Beyond DNA" held at National Science Museum of Japan. We tried to illustrate how molecular machines interact each other in the central dogma by giving "Japanese robot-anime" style representation to the molecules. By using this approach, people (especially kids) can easily distinguish between those molecules and understand how they function in our body.


  1. After looking at this video, it makes you wonder how anyone let alone scientists could say this just happened, naturally. What part of this is not ID, or creation?


  2. I've got to tell you that during this video my heart was just exploding with the excitement on seeing this process at work. How could anyone not see a Designer in this process? I'm just overwhelmed with the fact that whether we look at the cosmos in a macro slice or micro bit we see God's handiwork in all of His creation. All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
