DNA-Alphabet

These "letters", or sigils, are based on the permutations of the nucleic acids in the DNA molecule which produce the mRNA instructions for the ribosomes to produce the amino acid chain. So, when you're looking at the mRNA permutations, you'll need to switch them to their opposite. For example, UUU becomes AAA, and AAA becomes TTT (since Thymine is only found in the nucleus, and Uracil takes on its role outside the nucleus). Thus, when memorized and understood, these Letters also act as a memorization tool for the nucleic acid permutations. You'll be able to look at "UUAGCGAAG..." and recognize it as if it were an old friend. "By names and symbols are all powers awakened and reawakened."

So, here is the Alphabet. Soon, we'll be moving on to the 2-letter Words (the dipeptides).
