Base frequency, codon usage, and intercodon identity were analyzed in five filarial parasite species representing five Onchocercidae genera. Wucheria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Onchocerca volvulus, Acanthocheilonema viteae, and Dirofilaria immitis gene sequences were downloaded from NCBI, and analysis was performed using locally designed computer programs and other freely available applications. A clear sequence bias was observed among the nematode species examined. At the nucleotide level, AT… CONTINUE READING
