Abstract

Unequal use of synonymous codons has been found in several prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes. This bias has been associated with translational efficiency. The prevalence of this bias across lineages is currently unknown. Here, a new method (GCB) to measure codon usage bias is presented. It uses an iterative approach for the determination of codon scores and allows the computation of an index of ...
