    1. Genetic information is stored through the arrangement of the nitrogenous bases (adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine).

    2. 3 bases code for one amino acid.

    genetic information is stored using a code sequence of G,A,T,and C (short for guanine, adenine, thymine, cytosine) These molecules are used as a sort of blueprint or a pattern from which proteins are made.

    DNA only codes for proteins. These proteins are responsible for making all of the other molecules in your body, including cellular organelles and energy molecules.

    Three DNA bases code for a single AA (amino acid) though multiple combinations of bases can code for the same AA.

    A protein molecule called a ribosome travels down a strand of DNA and reads it, translating each group of 3 bases into an amino acid.

    A chain of amino acids, once completed, folds itself into a complicated structure called a protein, which has a specific function in the body.

    genetic information is stored as a pattern of bases that code for amino acids to turn on and off.

    3 dna bases code for an amino acid

    The first person to answer gave a reasonable response to the first question.

    The second question is probably a trick question. 3 bases code for 1 amino acid, but thats from RNA. For doulbe stranded DNA, 6 bases sense and antisense strands are responsible for the information encoding 1 amino acid ( or residue). It depends if your teacher likes trick questions.

    1. Through the order of the base pairs (adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine)

    2. 3 bases code for an amino acid (these 3 bases = 1 codon)

    human beings synthesize specific DNA molecules from scratch each and all of the time. maximum of them are incredibly small (20-60 base pairs), yet researchers have synthetically made very super DNA molecules. easily, i do no longer think that the chemistry of becoming DNA is very confusing. the present theory is that the 1st genetic textile replaced into RNA, and not DNA. And no, it incredibly is no longer unrealistic in any respect to think of that a incredibly user-friendly self-replicating RNA molecule ought to arise by accident. as quickly because it did, then organic determination operated on it. there is not any could desire to think of an sensible fashion designer enjoying a functionality.

    It is encoded in the sequence of the bases

    Three bases produce one code called a Base-Triplet Code.

    Thymine, cytosines, guanine, adenine.

    The above is encoded in the DNA.
