What are ribosomes?

Ribosomes are small protein factories found in cells.

They are located in the cytoplasm and on the ER

See the small dots on the ER and in the cytoplasm

Here is how the ribosome makes a protein.

In the cytoplasm, DNA is transcribed to RNA

The ribosome reads the RNA in triplets and the correct amino acids are put together to create a protein.

Ribosomes are found in the plant, animal, and bacterial cells.
