Cool molecular biology animation

Nature has been doing these animations for a while now, but they just released one about RNAi - at least I think it’s new; it’s the first I’ve seen of it. If you haven’t heard of RNAi, you should. It’s a technology we’re going to be hearing more and more about in the next few decades. I’ll let the animation explain the rest:

I love these animations. It’s just mind blowing to know that this is happening in every cell in my body, 24/7

I could have used this two weeks ago when I lectured on RNAi. I just lectured on Dicer and RISC! This is great. I esp liked the little actin-myosins in the beginning.
