I have been looking at some primer sequences for cyanobacteria and I have noticed that they contain 'R' and 'Y' see below. I work mainly with human work and I wondered if someone can explain the differences as I have never come across this.

I would appreciate if anyone can clarify as I am sure there is a simple explanation

Thanks in advance.
