The mutational response index (MRI) and measurements of codon bias were determined in three characterised genes, and two open reading frames of unknown function, from the Frankia nif operon, which encodes genes for nitrogen fixation. The merits of the different systems of measuring codon usage are discussed in the light of the results, as are the applicability of these techniques to the assessment of the translational function of putative open reading frames.
