a. Codons: set of 3 bases in mRNA that corresponds to particular amino acids.
i. Redundancy: 64 codons for 20 amino acids, so more than one codon for each amino acid
ii. Anticodons: tRNA anticodons are 3 bases complimentary to mRNA codons. Ex: AAU=UUA

b. Amino acids: of what proteins are composed

c. Ribosomes: where translation of mRNA to amino acid chains takes place

DNA= TAC GAG GGA CAC ACT TGAAG
RNA= AUG CUC CCU GUG UGA ACUUC
