how many codons exist

Is the answer 64

  • science -

    There are 64 possible codon permutations since there are three nucleotides of 4 four possible values (4^3 = 64).

    That includes duplicates (codons that code for the same amino acid) and unused codons as well. There are fewer effective codon permutations.
