Biological synthesis

Natural polymers and biopolymers formed in living cells may be synthesized by enzyme-mediated processes, such as the arrangement of DNA catalyzed by DNA polymerase. The synthesis of proteins involves multiple enzyme-mediated processes to transcribe genetic information from the DNA and subsequently translate that information to synthesize the particular protein. The protein may be personalized further following translation in order to provide appropriate structure and function.
