Genes of the bacteria which has high G+C content genome DNA,
such as Streptomyces, possesees biased codon usage. This results
in extremely high G+C distribution at the third letter of each
codon. This nature permits the prediction of protein-coding
region in such bacteria.
Results of Streptomyces, Pseudomonas, Mycobacterium, and
Micrococcus genes are available as sample.
