The following was posted some time back on methods-and-reagents.

Good luck

A request was made for information about codon usage tables in electronic form.

There are codon usage tables for many species available by anonymous ftp
from in the molbio/codon directory.  It is my understanding
that these will work without modification with the GCG package.
Kudos go to Mike Cherry for creating the tables and Don Gilbert for the ftp 

These tables are also available at,, and the
EMBL netserver. Thus Kudos also go out to Reinhard Doelz, Rob Harper, 
and the EMBL staff.
