Abstract

The concept of genetic code comes from the recognition that proteins are genetically determined. There is a genetic correspondence among the building blocks of informational macromolecules (DNA, RNA, proteins). The genetic code is the expression of the relationship existing between the nucleotides of DNA and RNA as well as between the amino acid sequences of proteins and the nucleotide sequences of mRNAs. The standard genetic code is universal and virtually the same in all organisms. Exceptions to the rule are mitochondria and protozoa which have a few modified code words. Placing genetic cipher in a broader perspective one can distinguish other genetic signals beside the standard code, namely consensus sequences signaling different phases of replication, transcription and translation.
