Abstract

The degeneracy rules of genetic code including the distribution of terminators have been deduced through the minimization of mutational deterioration (MD). The MD of a given group of codons is divided into three parts: transitional, transversional and wobble's. The averaged mutational deteriorations (AMD) of various amino acids have been proved in order of their degrees of irreplaceability.
