Transcription and Translation: From DNA to Protein

François Jacob was a French biologist who, together with Jacques Monod, originated the idea that control of enzyme levels in all cells occurs through regulation of transcription, a process in which a particular segment of DNA is copied into RNA by the enzyme RNA polymerase and used for the construction of a new protein. Jacob shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Medicine with Jacques Monod and André Lwoff.
