Updated Arabidopsis codon usage table, in GCG format

I've had several requests for an updated codon usage table of Arabidopsis
since I originally created codon usage tables for many species from 
GenBank 63 two years ago. The table included below represents almost an 8
fold increase in the number of codons available for Arabidopsis and used
to generate the codon usage table. 

The enclosed table, like the original, is in GCG format. I believe it
should be fairly easy to convert this table to formats used by other
software products.

P.S. The ACeDB software used by the AAtDB database will produce a codon
usage table from any set of sequences known to the database. This is an
option of the DNA analysis window.

---------------------------------------------------------

Arabidopsis thaliana codon usage.

Created using 238 coding sequences from GenBank 72 including
updates through June 11, 1992.

Coding regions extracted from AAtDB database version 1.1 using the
ACeDB software version 1.7.

Table constructed using the GCG program CodonFrequency

Questions about this table should be directed to:

Meaning of the columns:
AmAcid   -  three letter code for the amino acid designated by the codon
Codon    -  Codon sequence
Number   -  Total number of occurances of this codon in the input set
/1000    -  Number of occurances of this codon per 1000 codons in the input set
Fraction -  Fraction of occurance of this codon is used from the set of
            codons representing the same amino acid
