The present paper will focus on the developments in our lab related to the origin of the code since the Israel meeting (1,2). Principally these items are: (a) a new set of correlations (3) which include ranked hydrophobicities of amino acids and dinucleotides; (b) binding constants (4) of Phe for the four mononucleotides; and (c) binding constants (5) of Phe, Leu, Ile, Val, and Gly for polyadenylic acid (poly A). The data continue to support a model for the origin of the code based on relationships between amino acids and their anticodons.
