The canonical genetic code

It is tough to represent tabular information in a proportional font.  So I will present a list representing the canonical genetic code.  There are three items separated by commas in each line.  The first is a representation of a codon, a nucleotide triplet.  Each base is represented by a letter: "a" for adenine, "g" for guanine, "c" for cytosine, and "u" for uracil.  The second item is either an amino acid or a "stop", where each amino acid is represented by a three-letter abbreviation.  The third item is a single-letter code for an amino acid.

Here's a page with a table showing the canonical code and the full expansion of the abbreviations.
