  Genetic code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The genetic code or genocode, is a set of rules that maps information encoded in messenger RNA sequences to amino acid sequences (proteins) in the living cell, and is employed in the process of protein synthesis.
Numerous variations of the standard genetic code are found in mitochondria, which are energy-producing organelles that reside inside eukaryotic cells.
Since there are many possible genetic codes that are thought to have similar utility to the one used by Earth life, the theory of evolution suggests that the genetic code was established very early in the history of life.
