Ribosome Animation

For a while I thought I would be only science blog that would make it through October without mentioning the Nobel Prize. But via Chemical Blogspace I came across this video interview of the 2009 Nobel Prize co-winner in Chemistry Venki Ramakrishnan posted on The Sceptical Chymist (note: spell-check when you name your blog!):
During the interview they show some stunning molecular animations of the ribosome in action, which are credited to Said Sannuga and Ramakrishnan. I wonder ... Sure enough there are several very interesting animations on Ramakrishnan's web site. The screencast above shows a few seconds of one of them. For the rest, go to the site and have a look.
