The table can be displayed in portrait mode as an 8 by 8 matrix of codons. The codons (DNA triplets) are color-coded according to the charge-type of the translated amino acid or translational functionality such as start/stop.
The codon display can be changed to 3-letter amino acid, DNA, or RNA codes; or 1-letter amino acid code.
Each table acts as a codon keyboard, enabling the user to type a message in one of several formats: 3-letter amino acid code, DNA, or RNA; or 1-letter amino acid code. This message can be texted using the default messaging app.
