Dear Sir,

I have a question about lists

If I recall a protein sequence for example, the output will be

{ ACDQXXYWT ...............  }

This output contains amino acids but as one element in list & its length is

How can I transform this one element to this form

{A,C,D,Q,X,X,Y,W,T,......... }

So, the length will be number of amino acids the protein contains

I need your advice

Thanks in advance
