DNA molecules consist of chemically linked sequences of the bases adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine, denoted A, G, C, and T. A sequence of three bases is called a codon. A base may appear more than once in a codon.
a. How many different codons are there?
b. The bases A and G are purines, while C and T are pyrimidines. How many codons are there whose first and third bases are purines and whose second base is a pyrimidine?
c. How many codons consist of three different bases?
Step 1 of 3
There are four bases A,C,G and T
A sequence of three bases are called codon
a) The number of possible codons are 4(4)(4)=64
