General guidelines for the molecular basis of functional variation are presented while focused on the rotating circular genetic code and allowable exchanges that make it resistant to genetic diseases under normal conditions. The rules of variation, bioinformatics aids for preventative medicine, are: (1) same position in the four quadrants for hydrophobic codons, (2) same or contiguous position in two quadrants for synonymous or related codons, and (3) same quadrant for equivalent codons. To preserve protein function, amino acid exchange according to the first rule takes into account the positional homology of essential hydrophobic amino acids with every codon with a central uracil in the four quadrants, the second rule includes codons for identical, acidic, or their amidic amino acids present in two quadrants, and the third rule, the smaller, aromatic, stop codons, and basic amino acids, each in proximity within a 90 degree angle. I also define codifying genes and palindromati, CTCGTGCCGAATTCGGCACGAG.
