Our perspective using rate distortion dynamics, is that such a sequence of broken symmetries corresponds to phase transitions in the underlying error correcting networks through which the codon allocation to amino acids is mainly the outcome of error-correction minimization and efficiency (see [10] and references therein), a scenario that appears relevant to the approach of Ardell and Sella [4, 66, 67].

The codon for the amino acid methionine often serves as a start signal, while three other codons serve as punctuation marks, telling protein construction to "stop.
