Analysis of synonymous codon usage in FAD7 genes from different plant species

Q. P. Ma, Li, C., Wang, J., Wang, Y., and Ding, Z. T., Analysis of synonymous codon usage in FAD7 genes from different plant species, vol. 14, pp. 1414-1422, 2015.

In this study, the codon bias of the FAD7 genes among 10 different plant species was analyzed to identify general patterns of codon usage in the FAD7 genes. Our results showed that U-ended or A-ended codons were preferentially used in FAD7 for dicots, whereas G-ended or C-ended codons were preferentially used in FAD7 for monocots. An ENC-plot showed that some other factors may influence the codon usage of FAD7, except mutation bias in plant species.
