multiple test sets

Follow

We are given only one test case, it is bad, because there can be lots of corner cases. On GCJ there are multiple test sets, why don't you introduce similar? How do you expect to test corner and tricky cases at all? I know, it is not timus or topcoder, but still it can be a good aproach

Maybe I've missed a way to do this but I think it'd be a nice feature to be allowed to submit code even after submitting a correct answer to a problem. Also, a text box to copy & paste code would be awesome instead of having to upload a file since I'm using IPython.

Add water mass to glossary

Follow

It's a small thing, but I went looking for the water mass value and it wasn't in the glossary. To find it I looked under Problems/Topics, then Computational Mass Spectrometry. I glanced at all six problems quickly, didn't see it, so went back to Calculating Protien Mass, then expanded the background information, and there it was.

Thank you!  This was indeed our inconsistency. Regards, Rosalind

It would be nice if you could state that DNA/RNA letters will always be ASCII and always use capitals. (It helps for optimization. These are also fun tests to figure out how optimially they can be solved, not just for the right answers.)

FASTA

Follow

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?

A list of prerequisite problems (with brief descriptions) on a problem page would be handy. Please consider adding it.

why not posting your successes/solutions/ideas in social networks just from Rosalind site? It would bring new interested people.

it was very bizarre to go to the first question then click away the annoying popups to then be forced to solve a problem i hadn't even *read* about in some arbitrary time limit. this as far as I'm concerned doesn't make any sense at all. I'd prefer to think about the problem in my own time.
from noonsilk+rosalind+feedback · 4 years & 353 days ago · 0 followers · 1 comment
The problem description is unclear in several ways: 1) Whether the reverse comlement of the DNA string should be considered for possible open reading frames 2) Whether the start codon's amino acid should be included in output 3) Whether any junk DNA would close an open reading frame, invalidate that bit of string, or be ignored 4) The bit of the expandable header "For example, ..." suggests that the 'read head' could start at 0, 1, or 2 positions after the beginning of the start codon.

Better autocompletion

Hey Rosalind team ! Here is a suggestion if you have the time to think about it: in the "solutions" sections, why not use a better code highlighter, one that would be language-specific and highlight all keywords, for instance "def" in Python ? That would make it easier to understand, especially for the langages that we don't know. Apart from that, like everyone else, I think you did a very very good job, The website is young and yet already near perfection.
from Tintin · 4 years & 315 days ago · 0 followers · 1 answer
In your code block you can specify programming languge explicitly in the first line, e.g. :::python def f(): ... We use CodeHilite  for this feature, it tries its best to guess the language, but it's not always possible.

The problem for Alignment-Based Phylogeny says that dH(T) is the sum of hamming distance over all the edges of the tree. The required return value asks for the minimum possible dH(T), but makes no mention of a reordered tree. If the tree structure is not changed, then the sum of hamming distances between the edges won't change (because the edges don't change). Further clarification of this problem (or the required return value) is needed, because I see no way I can get a dH(T) of 3 with edges TC, AG, and T-.

It would be nice if each problem had a forum for sharing ideas about solutions to the problems that were available to people once they had solved the problem. Presumably there would be value to finding good algorithms to solving these problems.

Kill the "Welcome" msg.

Both sample datasets and expected answers break one widely accepted idea in command line tools, namely, that they should end in a new line. Even my text editor "mentions" that there is a new line missing at the end of the file. It is not a problem, as such, but it wouldn't hurt anyone, and use of "cat", for example, won't end up in having an awkward prompt glued to the end of the data. Or am I missing some problem that Windows users would run into? (I don't mind using the Windows style line breaks, that one can deal with consistently)

Figure 4 in Catalan Numbers and RNA Secondary Structures (CAT) should be bigger. Even when clicking on the picture, it does not become much bigger. This will make it significantly easier to see, especially for those with poor vision.

Sorry about this and thank you for your feedback!  The modified figure will appear at next import.
