variations is the simple answer. You only have 20 animo acids and you have 64 triplet possibilities. 3 of those possibilities are stop codons that terminate the translation (UAA,UAG,UGA) so really you have 61 possibilities for unique amino acids. I am not an expert in genetics and translation the first chart on this wikipedia link really sums it up well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Start_codon Enjoy!
