In the Beginning Was the Gene

geneThe standard genetic chart is a way of viewing the arrangement of simple amino acids that are used by DNA to construct proteins within the human body. The Standard Genetic Code has been universally recognized within the field of genetics since 1962. And when the geneticists analyze or breakdown and subsequently come to a conclusion as to the sequence of the individual amino acids it is expressed through the use of the Standard Genetic Code Table, which is a chart that uses four letters — U (for RNA, or “T” for DNA), C, G, and A — and this chart is constructed with the coordinates where you have these four letters across the top and multiples of the same letters down the side. Each letter represents one of the nucleotide bases — uracil (or thymine), cytosine, guanine and adenine — used to construct amino acids and proteins.
