Reading DNA

For the chemists who may happen to come to this blog, this note, "Chemiotics: Chemists — masters of the Cartesian dualism and the two links within it are worth reading.

"The information in DNA depends on how it's read (one way by the ribosome reading mRNA to make a protein, another by the splicing machinery to determine what mRNA is made, and a third way by microRNAs to determine how long the mRNA hangs around)."

Follow the link, above!
