Translation and Translation Heterogeneity

The flow of information from DNA to messenger RNA and protein, is described by the central dogma of molecular biology. In 1957 Francis Crick, James Watson, and Maurice Wilkins were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of DNA and RNA and the significance of the information transfer from DNA to proteins. Since then, there have been many discoveries and technological advances that led to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of gene expression. At the very end, the fate and function of each cell depends on its protein composition. Therefore, accurate gene expression control is critical for proper cell functioning....
