BSA — The spec mentions IUPAC-IUB single letter codes

  • Summary:

    The spec mentions IUPAC-IUB single letter codes,

    I think this has been renamed to IUPAC-IUBMB Joint Commission on
    Biochemical Nomenclature (JCBN); the best web site for this is (amino acids) (nucleic acids) (all biostandards)

    Might be useful to include in the references.

    IUB allows termination characters in amino acids; I think we should not
    allow them. Also, it might be good to explicitly state that gap characters
    ('-' or so) are not supposed to be in sequences (this is fairly implicit in
    IUPAC, so I think had doesn't hurt to be clear about this).
