Ribosome are the sites of protein synthesis which is when individual cells build specific proteins. The use the cells genetic information to create proteins the cell can use. They bind mRNA (messenger RNA) and (transfer) tRNA to proteins and polypeptides (many amino acid residues bonded to form a chain). RNA is ribonucleic acid.
