RNA Codewords and Protein Synthesis, VII. On the General Nature of the RNA Code
In this report, the template activities of twenty-six additional trinucleotides are described and related to the nature of
the RNA code. This builds on earlier work of Nirenberg and others, which describes the template activities of nineteen additional
trinucleotides and nucleotide sequences suggested for RNA codons corresponding to amino acids. While still far from an "invariant
dictionary" at this stage in the research, a table of possible nucleotide sequences is provided.
