    mRNA (See list below or attached chart).
    1) AUG - Met (Start)
    2) UUC (can be a codon for any AA, except for one that codes for
    a start or a stop AA)
    3) CUG (can be a codon for any AA, except for one that codes for
    a start or a stop AA)
    4) GCA (can be a codon for any AA, except for one that codes for
    a start or a stop AA)
    5) UAA - Stop OR UAG - Stop OR UGA - Stop.

    Complementary DNA
    (Must compliment mRNA strand- T to A; A to U; G to C; C to G)
    1) TAC (complimentary to codon listed in mRNA sequence, above)
    2) AAG (complimentary to codon listed in mRNA sequence, above)
    3) GAC (complimentary to codon listed in mRNA sequence, ...
