1. Degenerate code
The fact that in most cases in the genetic code used by all life on Earth, one particular amino acid is specified by more than one three-base combination of the four nitrogenous base s (called a codon ). There are enough different codons to specify 64 different amino acids, but there are in actuality only 20 amino acids (and three stop codon s) used in the making of protein s.
