CAT Composition Analysis Toolkit

Introduction

CAT (Composition Analysis Toolkit) is a software package that includes a novel measure of codon usage bias, Codon Deviation Coefficient (CDC). Unlike previous measures, CDC effectively accounts for background nucleotide composition in estimating codon usage bias and utilizes a bootstrap assessment of the statistical significance of codon usage bias.
