Well, those datasets I'd like to see... What I was getting at is the
strand probably isn't known at the experimental level, but to describe
the site a strand has to be arbitrarily picked so you can write the
sequence of the site down as a single string. Its probably the case that
the strand information you have is just the way it happened to be
reported in the literature and has no biological meaning.
