Looking for alternate genetic codes

You mean like in metazoan mitochondria?  See David Wolstenhome's 1992
review in Int'l Rev of Cytology 141:173; for yeast see Bonitz 1980 PNAS
77:3167.

If it is organelle codes you're interested in, I'd be interested to know
whether variants are used in other systems, e.g. plant mtDNA or cpDNA,
fungal mtDNA, etc. 

Regards, Dan.
