       amino [ -h ] [ -v | -s ] pattern  ...


       amino is a program which displays ASCII  art  diagrams  of
       the  molecular  structure of the 20 amino acids present in
       biological lifeforms. To see the diagram of  a  particular
       amino  amino  acid,  simply give the 3-letter, or 1-letter
       abbreviation as an argument - or, alternatively, a  DNA  /
       RNA codon.
       The  program  works both on the command line, and as a CGI
       script on a webserver - pick a nice day, copy  it  to  the
       cgi-bin directory of your webserver and try it! :)


       amino  Leu
          will display the molecular structure for Leucine.

       amino  list
          shows  a  list of all amino acids, with their abbrevia­

       amino  codons
          shows a list of the DNA codons for all amino acids.

       amino  polar
          shows the names of all amino acids with uncharged polar
          side chains.

          will  show  the  webinterface of this program, if it is
          installed in the cgi-bin directory of your webserver :)


       -h, --help
              Display a list of all command line options

       -d, --decode
              Read  DNA  codons  from  stdin  and convert them to
              3-letter amino acid codes.

       -fd, --fastdecode
              Same as but faster, possibly more buggy...

       -e, --enhance
              Read single letters  from  the  command  line,  and
              expand  them  to  the 3-letter abbreviations of the

       rect for all eukaryotic lifeforms. However,  for  bacteria
       and  mitochondria  the codons may be slightly different in
       some places, so be warned!
