  • In the New York Times Book Review Thomas Mallon faults Lidie Newton for "dutiful caricatures of white degeneracy and black nobility ...

  • Furthermore, we introduce a local background model to cut down the number of false positives arising from local variations in sequence composition and degeneracy of motifs (for example motifs that contain a poly A string).

  • For sequence analysis, the prospects are more promising: given very limited information about a species (the GC content), it may be possible to estimate the codon usage and therefore minimize the degeneracy of PCR primers, even if no closely related species have been characterized.

  • Values for f2 (the percentage of identical codons for conserved twofold-redundant amino acids - Cys, Asp, Glu, Phe, His, Lys, Asn, Gln, and Tyr) between two aligned proteins are calculated by looking at the codons' third position in positions at which amino acids with twofold degeneracy occur.

  • Because of these extreme biases, knowing an organism's preferred codon usage is of direct practical relevance in minimizing degeneracy of PCR primers and in maximizing the effectiveness of in vivo genetic manipulation.
