[Biococoa-dev] BCCodon bug (?)

The method AminoAcidSymbolString in BCCodon returns the symbol '*'  
when theAminoAcid is nil. However, if you pass that in an NSString to 
BCSequenceProtein the code crashes, because '*' is not an entry in the 
amino acids plist. For gaps the entry in the plist is a hyphen. Maybe 
there is a specific reason to use the asterisk, in that case I will add 
a line to BCSequenceProtein to skip that symbol. Otherwise, can you 
change AminoAcidSymbolString to return an hyphen?

Also, change the name of the method to aminoAcidSymbolString (first 
letter should be lowercase).
