Ribosome john Cardenas

Ribosomes are a minute particle consisting of RNA and associated proteins, found in large numbers in the cytoplasm of living cells.
Ribosomes are either located in the liquid inside the cell called the cytoplasm or attached to the membrane. They can be found in both prokaryote and eukaryote cells.
The Ribosome's main function is to be like a micro-machine to produce proteins.
Since it is made up of special proteins and nucleic acids, it can link amino acids and information from the cell nucleus which will turn into a protein.
In relation to BCIT, the Ribosomes are like the students of the school. They come in each day and the "protein" produced is like the energy they put into everyday class.
