"""ASTRAL RAF (Rapid Access Format) Sequence Maps.
The ASTRAL RAF Sequence Maps record the relationship between the PDB SEQRES
records (representing the sequence of the molecule used in an experiment) to
the ATOM records (representing the atoms experimentally observed).
This data is derived from the Protein Data Bank CIF files. Known errors in the
CIF files are corrected manually, with the original PDB file serving as the
final arbiter in case of discrepancies.
Residues are referenced by residue ID. This consists of a the PDB residue
sequence number (up to 4 digits) and an optional PDB insertion code (an
ascii alphabetic character, a-z, A-Z). e.g. "1", "10A", "1010b", "-1"

in PDB files to 1-letter codes. The 3-letter codes
