    Splitting Long Sequences of Letters (DNA, RNA, Proteins, Etc.)

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 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.
