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 6

CpG dinucleotide frequencies among different classes of RNA and small DNA viruses infecting mammals and insects. Viruses were divided into groups based on the genomic composition: RNA+: positive strand RNA viruses; RNA-: negative strand RNA viruses; rtRNA: reverse transcribing viruses (Retroviridae, Hepadnaviridae and Caulimnoviridae); dsRNA: double-stranded RNA viruses; ssDNA: single stranded DNA viruses as indicated in the inset box.
