Rosalind in F# - Finding a Protein Motif

Finding a Protein Motif is the problem we’ll be looking at today and it’s all about pattern matching. We’ll start by learning about motifs and their notation, and then we’ll move on to writing some code that can apply one to a protein string. 1,100 more words

Rosalind in F# - Overlap Graphs

Overlap Graphs is our next problem on the list. This problem has us looking at graphs, a data structure in computer science which tracks relationships between members of a group. 1,742 more words

Rosalind in F# - Calculating Protein Mass

After the real head scratcher that was the previous problem, Calculating Protein Mass is a nice change of pace.  In this problem we will learn about weighted alphabets, and use this knowledge to calculate the weight of a protein. 428 more words

Rosalind in F# - Independent Alleles

In Independent Alleles, we once again need to dive in to the world of probability and statistics. This time, however, there is no clever way around and no way elegant way to brute force our way to an answer. 1,213 more words

Rosalind in F# - Inferring mRNA from Protein

Inferring mRNA from Protein is the first problem that explicitly deals with something we came across in the Mortal Fibonacci Rabbits problem: how to deal with very, very large numbers when we only have a finite number of bits to represent them. 1,236 more words

Rosalind in F# - Calculating Expected Offspring

The next problem for us, Calculating Expected Offspring, is another problem based in statistics and probability. In this problem, we explore the concepts of… 991 more words
