Biology: Replication, Transcription, and Translation

Fill in the chart below using the mRNA Codon chart to translate the genetic code.
|DNA Template| mRNA Codon| tRNA Anticodon| Amino Acid|
  (??)                         (??)                     GCG                (??)
   CAT                        (??)                      (??)                (??)
   (??)                        ACC                      (??)                (??)
   (??)                        (??)                       (??)                Tryptophan
   AGC                        (??)                       (??)                (??)
2) How can the genes that a cell possesses determine how the cell acts and how it is made?

Isn't it the mRNA codon that then codes for the amino acid? I'm using an mRNA codon chart so I'm assuming that you use the mRNA codon... Unless you use a tRNA anticodon chart, maybe?
