Genetic code as the unity of chemism and semiosis

Abstract. The paper presents the properties of the genetic code (built from two components: amino acid and nucleotide component) in a new understanding, as the unity of chemism and semiosis. The connection between the two components is established through the three-membered nucleotide associations (three-letter „words“), the codons. In doing so, the Standard Genetic Code Table is viewed as a system-arrangement of strictly balanced and nuanced physico-chemical properties of amino acid molecules, with several „robust“ places; robust because they have a high amino acid diversity. …
