感動しました。 全ての学生はこれを見たほうがいいです。
難しいとおもわれてきたDNAのことが、美しい映像・CGでおもしろく、しかも丁寧な説明のもととても理解しやすくなっております。

必見です!!!

美しい・・・生物がいかに複雑かつ精妙か・・・科学系(だけじゃないでしょうが)の映像をこれから担っていかれることを期待してます。
部分の拡大説明だけでなく、一つの大きな流れを表現した映像を観てみたい。

アニメーションの色使いがとても繊細ですね!でも8分間ずっと同じ調子で少し飽きてきてしまったので、もうちょっとコミカルな楽しい感じならいいなーと思いました。

Now I feel like a scientist.
I am lucky I did not concentrate on science all that much in High school, as I was bound to watch this movie. I guess after watching this movie 5 times in a row I feel like an expert on DNA and enzymes. Who says “you can only learn at a young age”!!!
