Name size limit

description

Gene names are limited to 10 characters but imported names can be greater than 10. Is there are reason for this? Can the name size limit be increased?

No, names are limited to 10 character because they used for alignment programs that don't support names longer then 10 character.

Okay. Can you change the Swissprot import to concatenate to 10 characters? I'm a little bit OCD and I would like everything to be uniform.
