Figure 3

Correspondence analysis of the synonymous codon usage towards the coding genes in mtDNA. The analysis was based on the RSCU value of the 59 synonymous codons. The positions of each gene located in a super dimensional space were described in the first two-main-dimensional coordinates. Different genes were marked in the figure, where the black point, white square, red triangle refer to coding protein (CDP) gene, tRNA gene and rRNA gene respectively.
