What is Degeneracy of the Genetic Code?

It isn’t that the genetic code is morally bankrupt. Degeneracy just means that some amino acids have more than one nucleotide codon specifying them during protein synthesis. Learn the details below.

The Four Fundamental Forces of Nature

According to physics, there are four basic forces in the Universe: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong force, and the weak force. To learn more about them, we must look at them from a particle physics perspective.

The Standard Model of Elementary Particles

The Standard Model of physics includes 12 fermions, 12 gauge bosons, and the Higgs boson. It’s a combination of quantum chromodynamics and the electroweak theory with the addition of the Higgs mechanism. All it needs now is gravity.
