We analyzed the recently available whole genome sequences from two thraustochytrids (Aurantiochytrium limacinum ATCC MYA-1381, Schizochytrium aggregatum ATCC 28209) and one aplanochytrid (Aplanochytrium PBS07) We then calculated the genome-wide relative synonymous codon usage, codon frequencies and GC content for predicted coding sequences from each of the three species. We compared these to other stramenopiles: the diatoms Phaeodactylum tricornutum and Thalassiosira pseudonana, and the oomycete Phytophthora sojae, as well as to the ascomycete fungus Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
