yeah I checked the pdb and psf files built by Automatic PSF Builder plugin
and realized that. In fact the sequence built from Molefacture has no N/C
termini per se, but they appear after we create the psf-pdb combo and we
can edit the ends before creating the psf files.
the reason behind my confusion was chemists prefer to write C-terminus
first (although they label it as such so that we don't get confused. Check
