In one of the early problems we write a solution to read the FASTA format.

It would be useful (and encourage good practice/code reuse) to present later DNA strings in this format. Take CONS - "Given a collection of up to 10 DNA strings...". Why aren't we using FASTA, rather than creating a custom file reader for each problem?

And LCS - "A collection of k DNA strings (of length at most 1 kbp each; k≤100)." This surely should be presented to us in the FASTA format?
