Abstract

The relationship of nucleotide context on fifteen evolutionarily distinct bacterial species was investigated for all four and six codon families to identify the role of context dependency on synonymous codon usage. Genome signatures of four nucleotide words were used to identify the distribution, magnitude and nucleotide contextual patterns.
