1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Suppose we discovered a form of life like our own which utilized 20 amino acids, but had 6 nitrogeneous bases instead of the 4 our life uses. What would be the minimum length of a codon which could represent all 20 currently used amino acids? 3. The attempt at a solution I am a little confused about what I am being asked here. Would this mean that the length of a codon must be divisible by 6 making 24 the minimum?
