Cracking the Genetic Code

Abstract: The standard genetic code is the map, according to which almost any organism on our planet translates the information stored in DNA molecules into the building blocks of our cells - proteins. Historically, there was a period when the genetic code was one of the most intriguing and discussed aspects of biology. One of the reasons was that the code presented us with a fascinating puzzle - deciphering the code words that the cell uses to designate amino acids. In my talk I will explain the necessary biologically background, formulate the problem and review some of the historical developments. At the end of the talk I will give the answer to the quotation from the late 50th: "It will be interesting to see how much of the final solution [to the genetic code] will be proposed by mathematicians before the experimentalists find it..."
