Two Proteins for the Price of One: The Design of Maximally Compressed Coding Sequences
Abstract. The emerging field of synthetic biology moves beyond conventional genetic manipulation to construct novel life forms which do not originate in nature. We explore the pro...

Sequence similarity is more relevant than species specificity in probabilistic backtranslation
Background: Backtranslation is the process of decoding a sequence of amino acids into the corresponding codons. All synthetic gene design systems include a backtranslation module....
