I'm fairly sure this has come up in months past but a quick search of
the archives turned up nothing. Bio::SeqIO chokes when trying to read in
files that have one or more empty FASTA sequences. Was this
functionality desired or just a by-product of the parsing method? Empty
sequences are all too possible in a production environment so was this
decision intentional or would a patch be useful?
