Degeneracy is a salient feature of genetic codes, because there are more codons than amino acids. The appearance of degeneracy implies the existence of certain symmetry for codon multiplicity assignment. The conventional table for genetic codes in textbooks suffers from an inability of illustrating a symmetrical nature among genetic base codes. My following published symmetrical table for genetic codes provides the new perspective of possible codonamino acid relationship and explains the hidden meaning/logic behind the degenerative genetic codes.
