[meltsim] [Fwd: methylation?]

Excellent. Could you please send me a
sequence from the sequence database that has 5mC residues
specified. You understand, of course, that if the complementary strand
has different numbers of methylated residues, the melting program
would be in no position to take them into account. If there is strand
bias, and the complement sequence is known, the only solution would
be to melt the sequence twice, once for each strand, and then 
average the result.
