Answers to Questions (FAQ)

How to encrypt using the codon table?

Encryption the table of codons and transforms RNA codons into their amino acid codes according to official abbreviations IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) and IUBMB (Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology).
There are 22 amino acids, it is then possible to encode only 22 letters.

Example: DNA peut s'écrire CTG TTA CGG

Stop codons are coded with an asterisk character *

How to recognize a codon based ciphertext?

The message is composed of letters A, C, G, T and U, often by group of 3.

What are the names of amino acids?

The list of amino acids is

AAlanineAla
CCysteineCys
DAspartic acidAsp
EGlutamic acidGlu
FPhenylalaninePhe
GGlycineGly
HHistidineHis
IIsoleucineIle
KLysineLys
LLeucineLeu
MMethionineMet
NAsparagineAsn
PProlinePro
QGlutamineGln
RArginineArg
SSerineSer
TThreonineThr
VValineVal
WTryptophanTrp
YTyrosineTyr

What does DNA and RNA means?

DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic Acid and RNA stands for RiboNucleic Acid, they are among the most important molecules of living beings biology because they contain hereditary genetic information.

Abbreviation mRNA mean messenger RNA.

What are nucleotid mass?

Nucleotides have a molar mass of

C (cytosine)111
U (uracil)112
T (thymine)126
A (adenine)135
G (guanine)151

What are nucleotid density?

Nucleotides have a density of

T1.23
U1.32
C1.55
A1.60
G2.20

What are the variants of the codon based cipher?

It is possible to encode either RNA codons or DNA codons.
