mRNA Codon/Amino A cid Chart
Transcribe the DNA into mRNA codons by writing the complementary bases. • Find a codon's first base in the first column of the chart; stay in this row.
Rare codons are not sufficient to destabilize a reporter gene
but instead some codons are preferred, whereas others are rare. Circumstantial rare codons have a negative influence on mRNA stability.

(These strings were dubbed "codons.") He produced a wonderfully clever code in which each codon consisted of three bases. That was the only part that was right.

Differential strengths of selection on S-RNases from Physalis and Solanum
Highest posterior densities of dN/dS (omega) estimates show that the strength of selection is greater for Physalis at 36 codons. A nested maximum likelihood method was more conservative, but still found 16 sites with greater selection in Physalis.

(The genetic words or codons really just tell a cell which amino acid to put where in a protein.) Done correctly, this would probably make the bacteria immune to viral infection.
