From: Modelling mutational and selection pressures on dinucleotides in eukaryotic phyla –selection against CpG and UpA in cytoplasmically expressed RNA and in RNA viruses

Figure 1

G+C composition (x-axis) and frequencies of CpG and TpA (or UpA) dinucleotides in representative organisms with methylated (H. sapiens, D. rerio) and non-methylated genomes (A. gambiae), labelled in panels. Symbols for CpG and UpA dinucleotide frequencies (blue and red dots respectively; see inset box) and were expressed as the ratio of observed frequency / frequency expected from mononucleotide (base) composition of the fragment.
