Transcription and RNA Processing

ID #2042

For a question that asks how many codons specify amino acids. There is 1-AUG that is the start codon but also encodes for the amino acid methionine. I was confused about whether to include the start codon in the answer or to leave it out.

If a particular codon serves a unique function, but still codes for an amino acid, it would indeed be included in your total.
