Information is central to life. The principle enunciated by Crick, that information flows from the gene (DNA) to the protein, occupies such a key place in modern molecular biology that it is frequently referred to as the “central dogma”: DNA acts as a template to replicate itself, DNA is transcribed into RNA, and RNA is translated into protein.
