STATISTICAL REGULARITIES OF SYNONYMOUS CODON USAGE IN THE GENOME OF DIFFERENT ORGANISMS
On the basis of information taken from the Codon Usage Database, it is established that for six of the investigated groups of organisms, codon usage statistics is determined by two random processes: the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process and the Wiener process.
Keywords: codon usage bias, synonymous codon families, GC3- index, informational entropy, ensembles of organisms
