Abstract

It is known that DNA carries genetic information, and it is commonly assumed that the identity and linear order of the genes are determined by the linear sequence of nucleotides in DNA. However, little is known about the detailed relationship (or "code") between the DNA and proteins of a given species. A linkage group of genes may correspond to a unique nucleotide sequence, or it is possible that a large number of different nucleotide sequences could in principle carry the same genetic information.
