    Does a DNA sequence such as ATAACACG require a cap sign before each letter?

    Thanks for your help.


    In either Nemeth or Chemistry code, the letters in a DNA sequence are individually capitalized since each letter stands for a specific nucleotide.

    Regarding "DNA" in Nemeth code we follow EBAE for abbreviations so it would be double-capped. In Chemistry code we individually capitalize letters if the abbreviation is chemical, which this is (deoxyribonucleic acid).
