Nobel Prize in 1968. tRNA TGG is the sequence on the non-template strand of the DNA that codes for serine. What is the sequence of the anticodon of the tRNA? (Assume there is only 1 tRNA for serine.) A. UGG B. TGG C. UCC D. ACC E. Can’t tell TGG is the sequence on the non-template strand of the DNA that codes for serine. What is the sequence of the anticodon of the tRNA? (Assume there is only 1 tRNA for serine.) A. UGG B. TGG C. UCC D. ACC * E. Can’t tell TGG non-template ACC template UGG mRNA ACC anticodon The genetic code (by convention read as RNA) Why is the genetic code almost universal?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
