<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:sec> <jats:title>Background</jats:title> <jats:p>The Marburg virus (MARV) has a negative-sense single-stranded RNA genome, belongs to the family <jats:italic>Filoviridae</jats:italic>, and is responsible for several outbreaks of highly fatal hemorrhagic fever. Codon usage patterns of viruses reflect a series of evolutionary changes that enable viruses to shape their survival rates and fitness toward the external environment and, most importantly, their hosts. To understand the evolution of MARV at the codon level, we report a comprehensive analysis of synonymous codon usage patterns in MARV genomes. Multiple codon analysis ...
