    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.
