"Each codon represents a single amino acid, though some amino acids have several different codons. There are 20 different amino acids in human proteins so some amino acids are encoded for by more than one codon (this is refered to redundancy of the genetic code)." according to (www.uvm.edu/~cgep/Education/GeneticCode.html) and "The genetic code allows an organism to translate the genetic information found in its chromosomes into usable proteins" according to (www.biologyreference.com › Fo-Gr)
