The Genetic Code


The Genetic Code

Logo for The Genetic Code
We need several thousands of different proteins in our body. It is the genetic material, the DNA, in our cells that provides the information needed to produce all these proteins. The genetic information is stored in molecules represented by three-letter words called codons. These words need to be translated to the "protein language" of 20 words, each representing an amino acid. Translate the code and challenge a friend to a five in a row game online!
