Ribosomes are tiny proteins on the surface of membranes inside of cells (the endoplasmic reticulum) that translate RNA into proteins, i.e., they are the site of protein synthesis where most enzymes and structural components of cells are manufactured. The nucleus is the organelle that contains the genetic information of the cell and is also the site of DNA-RNA transcription.
