// Biopython CodonTable error?
// February 18, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Hello, I am writing some code intended to translate ambiguous DNA codes into possible amino acids and I am seeing some strange translation from the Biopython 1.56 package.  It appears to be translating ambiguous DNA codes to 'J' which does not exist as a code for anything.  I am running python 2.6.1 on Mac OS 10.6.6. 

For example:

>>>from Bio.Seq import *


>>>from Bio.Seq import Seq
>>>c = Seq('ARAWTAGKAMTA')

I have looked through the Bio.Data.CodonTable source and Bio.Seq source and I cannot find a reason why this would be happening.  Any ideas?
