scNCA

:: DESCRIPTION

scNCA is a Java program to obtain the self-consistent reference set for a given genome using the NCA (or CAI) codon bias index. The self-consistent reference set is defined as the set of genes within the genome that possess a dominant codon bias, in the sense that ranking all genes in the genome with a codon usage index based on such a set leads to picking out the same set as the top-scoring group of genes in the genome. When translational bias is present, the self-consistent reference set is likely to be populated by genes with heavy translational bias, although other biases, such as %GC content, can confound the algorithm.
