    Abstract: Non-standard amino acids in protein post-translational modifications aid in a wide variety of biological functions and processes, furnishing expansion from the genome to the proteome. First, from structural examinations in unmodified proteins with only standard amino acids, this work empirically obtains numeric relations that reveal how instruction... Show More
