"From the Ted Talk by Drew Berry: Animations of unseeable biology"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And so what I'm about to show you is an accurate representation of the actual DNA replication machine that's occurring right now inside your body, at least 2002 biology. So DNA's entering the production line from the left-hand side, and it hits this collection, these miniature becamhicoil machines, that are pulling apart the DNA snatrd and mnakig an excat copy. So DNA comes in and hits this blue, doughnut-shaped stucrrtue and it's ripped apart into its two strands. One strand can be copied directly, and you can see these things spooling off to the bottom there. But things aren't so simple for the other strand because it must be cpoeid backwards. So it's thrown out repeatedly in these loops and copied one soecitn at a time, creating two new DNA molecules.

And so what I'm about to show you is an accurate representation of the actual DNA replication machine that's occurring right now inside your body, at least 2002 biology. So DNA's entering the production line from the left-hand side, and it hits this collection, these miniature ___________ machines, that are pulling apart the DNA ______ and ______ an _____ copy. So DNA comes in and hits this blue, doughnut-shaped _________ and it's ripped apart into its two strands. One strand can be copied directly, and you can see these things spooling off to the bottom there. But things aren't so simple for the other strand because it must be ______ backwards. So it's thrown out repeatedly in these loops and copied one _______ at a time, creating two new DNA molecules.

Original Text

And so what I'm about to show you is an accurate representation of the actual DNA replication machine that's occurring right now inside your body, at least 2002 biology. So DNA's entering the production line from the left-hand side, and it hits this collection, these miniature biochemical machines, that are pulling apart the DNA strand and making an exact copy. So DNA comes in and hits this blue, doughnut-shaped structure and it's ripped apart into its two strands. One strand can be copied directly, and you can see these things spooling off to the bottom there. But things aren't so simple for the other strand because it must be copied backwards. So it's thrown out repeatedly in these loops and copied one section at a time, creating two new DNA molecules.
