    Could DNA really be synthesized using The amino acid sequence?

    From the bottom of your link:

    It's an April fools. To address the point of if its possible though I'll give you something to think about: how is mRNA read so that proteins might be translated (hint: look into codons).

    tRNA.. nodoc or anticodon reads the Triplets of RNA and the CCA (3') end attaches to the Amino acid bringing it for protein synthesis.. so?

    Yup you have the triplets, and if you were to have the amino acid sequence could you figure out the specific triplet?
