I am trying to obtain the number of synonymous and non-synonymous sites for a gene. I know that ensembl provides attributes like "mmusculus_homolog_dn" and "mmusculus_homolog_ds", i.e. the dn and ds values for a gene given mouse outgroup comparison, where dn = #non-synonymous mutations/#non-synonymous sites, and ds = #synonymous mutations/#synonymous sites. I need the denominators of these terms, i.e. the number of synonymous/non-synonymous sites in a gene (i.e. the number of possible silent and non-silent mutations per site summed over all sites in the cds). I searched the attribues page for biomart and nothing obvious came up with those terms, but I assume that this information is there with some attribute name that I couldn't identify.

Alternatively, if this information is not available from ensembl, is there another database that would have it?

Thank you.

I'm afraid that number is not accessible in BioMart, but you can get it via the Perl API.

OK, thanks. Perhaps in the future this would be a useful attribute to add to the data base.
