I'm working on a project in which I need to generate single letter codes for
non-conserved positions in an alignment i.e Y = C or T, B = C or G or T.
I'm, using UnivAln and/or SimpleAlign to handle my alignments - both will
generate consensuses (consensi ?), but of the format ACGGG!!T as opposed to
ACGGGYBT.  Has anyone written a subroutine to achieve this, and if not,
would others find it useful ?  If the former, could it be posted ?
