Abstract
Panax ginseng is usually used as a famous plant medicine in many countries. In order to study the codon usage in whole chloroplast genome in Panax ginseng, whole chloroplast genome sequence is analyzed via codonW software and some results such as relationships between the codon adaptation index, frequency of optimal codons, codon bias index, effective number of codons, especially the relative synonymous codon usage are all discussed. Furthermore, PR2-bias plot, histogram GC content, Codon Bias Index are also analyzed for exploring the sequence characteristics of chloroplast genome in Panax ginseng. These results showed that codon usage bias in the chloroplast genome from Panax ginseng is weak, and the relative results could lay a foundation for other further study on the medicinal plant Panax ginseng.
