Figure 1

Distribution of the GC CB and GC NCB content and the derived theoretical limits for 1364 prokaryotic genomes. A, the highest (red) and lowest (green) limits on nucleotide composition obtained by replacing natural codons with synonymous GC-richest and GC-poorest ones. B, the theoretical limits (red and green) on amino acid composition (GCNCB), see also Additional file 1: Figure S1.
