Residue and codon codes

Purpose of this page

This web page is just a list of basic information that we all needed to know but usually forget. Rather than just repeating the same list but in a different order, if you can not find something search the page using the browser 'Find' function (i.e. Ctrl + F in Microsoft's Internet Explorer).
