    Once it was determined that codons consisted of three-nucleotide sequences, the specificity of each codon could be determined.

    Using a codon table, determine what poly U codes for.
    Repeat with polynucleotides of the other three bases.

    Solution Summary

    This solution details the amino acids that are encoded by codons consisting of three identical nucleotides, and what protein would be encoded by a polynucleotide consisting of one nucleotide only, giving the four possibilities.
