coli bacteria cell while the host cell divides, forming a clone of cells called a "library." DNA contains the instructions to assemble amino acids in a specific order. The DNA information contained in the mRNA molecule has been translated into the "language" of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins.

. In their journey from DNA to protein, each of these noteworthy products shared something in common: They were the result of the use of recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules in a process called "DNA printing" -- aka "artificial gene sequencing, synthesis and protein production." Each product began as a digital "gene of interest" in a genomic database on the cloud-based Internet of DNA , represented in computer program code specifying the precise order of four chemical building blocks -- the "nucleobases" A,T, C and G ([A]denine, [T]hymine, [C]ytosine and [G]uanine) -- along a segment of DNA that would be used to turn that sequential computer code into actual genetic material.
