Codon usage

Calculate codon usage

Codon usage tables can be calculated and written to the Output window, and written to disk. If required the values found can be added to a pre-existing codon table. The values in the table can be expressed as observed counts or as percentages of usage for the cognate amino acid. A typical result is shown below.

The user can select the range and strand over which to count. Irrespective of the strand being counted, the positions in the sequence are always defined from the current 5' end. i.e. to count over bases 1 to 100 the user should set the Start position to 1 and the End position to 100.
