International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering Proceedings  
The nucleotide composition of protein-coding genes in the two DNA strands of Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Methanococcus jannaschii and mitochondrial genes of human and fruit fly was studied. E. coli, B. subtilis and M. jannaschii indicated compositional asymmetry in their genomic sequences. The protein-coding genes of E. coli and B. subtilis showed the influence of compositional asymmetry in their compositions, however, no influence was observed in M. jannaschii. Mitochondrial
