The Logic of Protein Synthesis
Part I. The General Problem...using an analogy
In a widget factory, the information for
each kind of widget is in reference books in
the library. The books cannot be removed
from the library. The production crews that
make the widgets are in the workroom.
The crews do nothing unless they have
instructions and widget parts.
A call for a particular widget arrives at the library. This triggers a series of
events, resulting in the production of the widget. What must these events be?
The factory has no telephones, no fax machines, no xerox machines...just
librarians, production crews, and miscellaneous necessary parts.
