Codons are three-letter codes that make up the genetic code. Both RNA and DNA have triplets known as codons. Each codon codes one of 20 amino acids that the body uses to synthesize amino acids. More »

A codon is a sequence of three nucleotides that comprise the foundation of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA). Anticodons are three-sequence nucleotides found in transfer RNA that complement codons in protein production. More »

A codon is a sequence of three nucleotides in DNA or RNA that either codes for a particular amino acid or tells the cellular machinery to start or stop using the code. A group of codons starts with the initiation codon. ... More »

There are 64 different possible codons to the genetic code. Each codon is composed of three of the four genetic bases: guanine and adenine, which are the purine bases, and cytosine and thymine or uracil, the pyrimidine b... More »

The genetic code is said to be universal because nearly all living organisms on Earth use the same four-letter code to direct their metabolic functions and build bodies. A single sequence of nucleotides is able to synthe... More »

Codons are triplet codes that comprise the genetic code. They consist of a sequence of three DNA or RNA nucleotides. In total, there are 64 unique codons that can be translated into 20 amino acids that bind together to c... More »
