The genetic code is a set of rules by which information encoded in genetic material  is translated into proteins. The code defines a correspondence between tri-nucleotide sequences, called codons, and amino acids.  In this lecture a history of discovery of genetic code will be presented and the role of mathematics (coding theory) will be demonstrated. The interesting fact is that genetic code is shown to be much different then mathematics can predict.  Some other application of coding theory will also be presented.
