       codonw - Correspondence Analysis of Codon Usage


       codonw [inputfile] [outputfile] [bulkoutfile] [options]


       CodonW  is  a  package  for codon usage analysis. It was designed to simplify Multivariate
       Analysis (MVA) of codon usage.  The  MVA  method  employed  in  CodonW  is  correspondence
       analysis (COA) (the most popular MVA method for codon usage analysis). CodonW can generate
       a COA for codon usage, relative synonymous codon usage or  amino  acid  usage.  Additional
       analyses  of  codon  usage include investigation of optimal codons, codon and dinucleotide
       bias, and/or base composition.
