Lyrics by Mr. Cortez (Hogan High School) and Tom McFadden.
DISCLAIMER: We wrote this song to get students excited about the basics of protein synthesis and how proteins can affect phenotypes, including disease phenotypes. Note that very few things in life can actually be "blamed on DNA", and we hope you don't walk away from this video with that message. We also don't want to make light of the seriousness of genetic disease - just to help people understand its basis.
