pLOT v1.0.1 Update Release

  pLOT update to v1.0.1 is now available.  This update allows gaps to be part of sequences in your Annotations Library and search strings (amino acid and DNA versions).  This results in a more flexible search and auto-annotations than you would get using "N" or "X" as ambiguous DNA bases or amino acids respectively and allow matching of sequences with variable lengths.  Gaps are represented by a "-" for both DNA and amino acid sequences.  An importable Annotations Library add-on file is also available with a few sequences to demonstrate this.
