I have created codon usage tables for the top 47 major species represented
in GenBank release 63. Within the next month I hope to update these
tables. I currently available tables were produced in April 1990. You can
obtain these tables via anonymous ftp from frodo.mgh.harvard.edu and
iubio.bio.indiana.edu. If you don't have access to Internet you can obtain
the tables from the embl-heidelberg.de mail server. You can also send me
an electronic mail request. Below is a list of the higher plant tables I
produced. All tables are in the GCG codon usage table format. To answer
Eric's second question, I found codon usage in plants generally fell into
two groups: monocots and dicots.
