Characterization and Analysis of Codon Usage Bias

Research Area: Molecular Evolution
Status: Finished

Description:
Degeneracy in the genetic code allows more than one triplet codon to code for the same amino acid, and usage of these codons is often biased such that one or more of these synonymous codons is preferred. Detection of this bias is an important tool in the analysis of genomic data, particularly as a predictor of gene expressivity.
