What is the genetic code?
Genetic code is the set of instructions, in the form of nucleotide triplets, that translate a linear sequence of nucleotides in mRNA into a linear sequence of amino acids in a protein.or the relation between nucleotide triplets in DNA and the amino acids in the protein is called genetic code.
Genetic codes consists of 64 codons, which codes 20 amino acids
For example: Codons are three nucleotides in messenger RNA (mRNA) that direct the placement of a particular amino acid into a polypeptide .
