Update completed with some new species

To adhere to the latest taxonomic coverage of Ensembl and Ensembl Metazoa, the databases for aLeaves have been updated. The below species have been newly included :

Strigamia maritima
Tetranychus urticae
Megaselia scalaris
Rhodnius prolixus
Anopheles darlingi
Pristionchus pacificus
Loa loa
Caenorhabditis japonica
Caenorhabditis brenneri
Caenorhabditis remanei

At the same time, new sequences at NCBI Protein (based on submissions of individual researchers) have also been incorporated into the database 7 and 13.

For some species indicated with '#' in the Species page, the peptide sequence sets are available now at Ensembl or Ensembl Metazoa, although they were available only in other site, such as NCBI Protein. We have newly adopted those new resources at Ensembl or Ensembl Metazoa, but also have basically kept the sequence sets that aLeaves has adopted so far.

Plus, I have included the protein-coding gene set of the sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) predicted by the genome annotation consortium (Smith et al., 2013. Nat. Genet.) in the database 6 (for 'Cartilaginous fishes and cyclostomes'), because the gene set available at Ensembl (which aLeaves has adopted so far) is quite different from the consortium dataset and may not be comprehensive enough.
