Codon usage in Clonorchis sinensis was analyzed using 12,515 codons from 38 coding sequences. Total GC content was 49.83%, and GC1, GC2 and GC3 contents were 56.32%, 43.15% and 50.00%, respectively. The effective number of codons converged at 51-53 codons. When plotted against total GC content or GC3, codon usage was distributed in relation to GC3 biases. Relative synonymous codon usage for each codon revealed a single major trend, which was highly correlated with GC content at the third… CONTINUE READING
