On 2005 Aug 29 I learned that we should have cited two papers:
Dibb had already noticed the similarity of the donor and acceptor
sites, but we didn't know about his paper! Our fault.
because the consensus sequences are
the same on the acceptor and donor sites but the information
curves are very different,
we invented logos to explain this case!
