Information for synthesis of a protein, contained in DNA, is copied (transcribed) onto mRNA (messenger RNA) in the nucleus.mRNA leaves the nucleus and enters the cytoplasm where it attaches to a ribosome. tRNA (transfer RNA) begins to read (translate) the information on the attached mRNA, then fetches amino acids that correspond to this information, from the pool of free amino acids found in the cytoplasm, bringing them to the ribosome where they are linked together into a chain to form  the primary structure of the protein.In brief, the process is summarized as: DNA  → RNA → Protein
