Table 2 Correlations between composition and response to GC content

From: A simple model based on mutation and selection explains trends in codon and amino-acid usage and GC composition within and across genomes

  Amino acids Codons
Correlation Archaea/ Eukaryotes Archaea/ Eukaryotes
with: bacteria   bacteria  
Slope 0.842 0.853 0.840 0.849
Intercept 0.878 0.886 0.931 0.910
Correlation 0.886 0.887 0.934 0.922
  1. Amino acids: correlation of each measure of response with mean codon GC content. Codons: correlations with difference between GC content and mean GC content of synonymous codons. See also Figure 2.
