Triplet code is a series of three nucleotides that determine a single amino acid. The smallest combination of four bases that could encode all 20 amino acids would be a triplet code. To put it in other words, it is a particular sequence of three consecutive nucleotides which forms a part of the genetic code specifying a particular amino acid in a protein or starts or stops protein synthesis.
