Frequency distribution of GC3 codons in mRNAs for human, mouse, Drosophila and yeast, and width of the distribution for several organisms. a. Frequency distributions of GC3 codons. We would like to point out that the distribution in human is wide, from genes composed of mainly GC3 codons to genes composed mainly of AU3 codons (with proportionally low amounts of GC3 codons). This is not the case for every organism. b. Width of the GC3 codon distribution, measured as full width at half maximum of histograms such as those in a, plotted for each organism
