Detailed Description

The ValueSize of Rna5 is 5. The nucleotides are enumerated this way: 'A' = 0, 'C' = 1, 'G' = 2, 'U' = 3. The 'N' character ("unkown nucleotide") is encoded by 4.

Objects of type Rna5 can be converted to various other types and vice versa. An object that has a value not in {'A', 'C', 'G', 'U'} is converted to 'N'.
