Splitting Long Sequences of Letters (DNA, RNA, Proteins, Etc.) Boris Veytsman Version 0.1, August 7, 2006 Sometimes one needs to typeset long sentences of letters, which should not have spaces between them (like letters in words), but could be split between lines at any point, often without a hyphenation character. This problem was formulated at the PracticalTeX-2006 conference by Klaus Hoeppner. In the general discussion several solutions were suggested. This package implements the one belonging to, I believe, Peter Flynn.

seqsplit – Split long sequences of characters in a neutral way
When one needs to type long sequences of letters (such as in
base-sequences in genes) or of numbers (such as calculations of
transcendental numbers), there's no obvious break points to be
found. The package provides a command \seqsplit, which
makes its argument splittable anywhere, and then leaves the TeX
paragraph-maker to do the splitting.
While the package may obviously be used to typeset DNA sequences, the user may consider the dnaseq as a rather more powerful alternative.
