Translation is the synthesis of a polypeptide based on the information encoded in the mRNA sequence. During translation, a sequence of 3 nucleotide bases encode for an amino acid. This 3-base sequence is called codon. Furthermore, the starting point of the translation process is defined by a unique codon known as start codon.
How long would the peptide be that is translated from this mRNA sequence: 5' - AUGGGCUACCGA-3'
