nice easy question.

It could stand for any of the following:

Security Support Provider Interface (Microsoft)
Security Service Provider Interface (Microsoft)
Society of Satellite Professionals International
Steady-State Plasma Insulin
Signs and Symptoms of Psychotic Illness (rating scale)
Salle de Soins Post-Interventionnels (French: Post-Interventional Room Care; recovery room)
Soldier Sensor/Platform Interface (ITT)

Apart from the quoted list available at TheFreeDictionary.com, other possibilities which may amuse people interested in future power supply technology, a corporation making use of mathematical information theory, exploitative pseud-science, spookery, or injecting things into people are

Space Solar Power Institute
Statistical Signal Processing Inc
Spirit Search Paranormal Investigations
Single Source Processor (IMINT)
Schmidt Sting Pain Index

If there's a genetic chemistry biologist amongst the readers, maybe he can tell us what sspI stands for when it's a restriction enzyme - I can't, I don't understand that stuff at all: the molecular structure of anything more complex that aniline is way beyond the ken of anyone like me, and I don't know what any of it's called (I can just about remember what RNA stands for on a good day, or even DNA on a very good day).

Had to think about it for a second, but nice simple question to start a long week.

Restriction enzymes cut DNA at a specific sequence of nucleotide bases, in this case, AATATT. They're used to isolate the whole gene from the rest of the genome, usually so it can be produced in large amounts via Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). From here, the manufactured genes can be spliced back into the genomes of other yeast cells in great number, creating your own little sspI protein-generating mass production factory.

The sspI restriction enzyme is so named because it's used to cut the sspI gene from the genome. The gene itself appears to encode for a spore protein in yeast.
