NEED HELP WITH GENE EXPRESSION LEVELS

Dear Molecular Evoultion Bulletin Board Members:

	I have been measuring codon usage, codon bias, and
dinucleotide frequencies in a group of species using Genbank/EMBL
sequences.  I am interested in determining if the sequences are highly
expressed, moderately expressed, or expressed at low levels.  I have
approximately 100 gene sequences, and I am not interested in
determining the levels experimentally.  Does anyone know how I can
make assumptions on expression levels?  For example, are DNA binding
proteins generally thought to be highly expressed?  Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
