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).
