An EMBOSS application. cai calculates the Codon Adaptation Index. This is a simple, effective measure of synonymous codon usage bias. The index uses a reference set of highly expressed genes from a species to assess the relative merits of each codon, and a score for a gene is calculated from the frequency of use of all codons in that gene. The index assesses the extent to which selection has been effective in moulding the pattern of codon usage. In that respect it is useful for predicting the level of expression of a gene, for assessing the adaptation of viral genes to their hosts, and for making comparisons of codon usage in different organisms. The index may also give an approximate indication of the likely success of heterologous gene expression.
Codon Adaptation Index. Codon adaptation index is a measurement of the relative adaptiveness of the codon usage of a gene towards the codon usage of highly expressed genes. The relative adaptiveness (w) of each codon is the ratio of the usage of each codon, to that of the most abundant codon for the same amino acid. The CAI index is defined as the geometric mean of these relative adaptiveness values. Non-synonymous codons and termination codons (dependent on genetic code) are excluded.
Codon Adaptation Index. The CAI is used to estimate the expression level of a protein. To calculate the CAI value of a yeast protein, a reference set of highly expressed yeast genes is used. For each codon in this set of reference genes the frequency of usage is calculated. A CAI score for a gene is calculated from the frequency of use of all codons in that gene. [P.M. Sharp and W.H.
