Coding for >700 (but <800) Amino Acids.

There are more than 700 amino acids in nature.
There are fewer than 800;
And most of them are not naturally “proteinogenic”.

There can theoretically be any even number between 2 and 12 different chemical species of nucleobase.
Codons can be quite long.

With 2 or more kinds of nucleobase, and 10 or more nucleobases per codon, we could have >= 2^10 = 1024 codon-types.
With 4 or more kinds of nucleobase, and 5 or more nucleobases per codon, we could have >= 4^5 = 1024 codon-types.
With 6 or more kinds of nucleobase, and 4 or more nucleobases per codon, we could have >= 6^4 = 1296 codon-types.
With 10 or more kinds of nucleobase, and 3 or more nucleobases per codon, we could have >= 10^3 = 1000 codon-types.

All of these are bigger than 799.
