16571. Animation 26: RNA was the first genetic molecule.
Stanley Miller and Harold Urey demonstrate that organic molecules can be synthesized under prebiotic conditions, and Thomas Cech and Sidney Altman show that RNA can have enzymatic activities.
16096. Pigment Biosynthesis in Plants
Shows the biosynthetic pathways that lead to the synthesis of carotenoids and anthocyanins in plants.
15915. The first recombinant DNA
Stanley Cohen and Herbert Boyer's historic experiment used techniques to cut and paste DNA to create the first custom-made organism containing recombined or "recombinant" DNA.
15916. DNA transformation
Stanley Cohen and Herbert Boyer inserted the recombinant DNA molecule they created into E. coli bacteria by means of a plasmid, thereby inducing the uptake and expression of a foreign DNA sequence known as "transformation."
