The BLOSUM(n) [e.g. BLOSUM(62)] returns a 24 by 24 matrix with the following amino acid sequence 'A R N D C Q E G H I L K M F P S T W Y V B Z X *'. The first 20 are amino acids, the next three are special amino acid characters, what does * stand for? Does it stand for Gap(-). Source: http://in.mathworks.com/help/bioinfo/ref/blosum.html
