My thanks to all of you who responded to my recent request for codon 
tables.  Thanks especially to J. Michael Cherry, Micheal Ashburner, and 
Glenn Hammonds for providing electronic copies that my computer can read.  
Those of you who want these may find them in the anonymous ftp archive at 
Iubio.bio.indiana.edu, in the directory [archive.molbio.data] as
    FLY.CODON-GCG
    FLY.CODON-TABLE
    HUMAN.CODON-GCG
    MOUSE.CODON-GCG
    SPOMBE.CODON-GCG 
    YEAST.CODON-GCG 
The -GCG files are suitable for use in the GCG programs, as well as 
readable by humans.  There are also some command scripts in 
[archive.molbio.gcg] for using these tables with GCG software.  P.S., if 
you are translating from protein to nucleic acid, your choice of codon 
table makes a big difference.       -- Don
