The ribosome is the nanomachine that translates RNA bases from messenger RNA into amino acids and proteins. The principle function of a ribosome is to take messenger RNA (mRNA) derived from genes (typically stored as DNA) and use them as a template or recipe to construct poly-peptides (proteins) by matching 3-base RNA triplets (codons), one at a time, to amino acids using transfer rna (tRNA) to aid in the process.
