- Synonymous codon bias and functional constraint on GC3-related DNA backbone dynamics in the prokaryotic nucleoidGregory A Babbitt
Thomas H Gosnell School of Life Sciences, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester NY, USA 14623
Nucleic Acids Res 42:10915-26. 2014..We propose that synonymous sites may have evolved as an 'accessory' during an early expansion of a primordial genetic code, allowing for multiplexed protein coding and structural dynamic information within the same molecular context. ..

School of Biological and Medical Sciences, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA
Gene 466:43-8. 2010..These results indicate a role of chromatin context dependency in relaxing selection against spurious binding in nearly half of all TF binding motifs throughout the yeast genome...
