[Market strategy] Tetraloop color line

This strategy is meant for when our bot starts to play with colors in the tetraloops. Here is a pattern that is generally a bad idea.

I would like a strategy for lines of three nucleotides of the same color in a row in these positions.

Give -1 pr. line of 3 nucleotides of the same color in line. For green, red and blue. Only exception is yellow.

Give -2 if pr. line of 4 nucleotides of the same color in line. Except for yellow.

Dear Eli,

Your strategy has been added to our implementation queue with task id 124. You can check the schedule of the implementation here.

Thanks for sharing your idea!

Dear Eli Fisker

We are glad to report that your strategy has been implemented and tested.

While implementing your strategy, we have made small changes to the parameters you specified to optimize the performance.

Note that we’ll always run a optimization over the parameters you specify, so you won’t have to worry about fine tuning all the numbers you use.

Just the idea and rough numbers are enough to run your algorithm!

Length : Your strategy was implmented with 19 line of code.

Ordering : We ran your strategy on all synthesized designs and ordered them based on predicted scores. The correlation of your strategy’s ordering with the ordering based on the actual scores was 0.0439363715411. (1.0 is the best score, -1.0 is the worst score. A completely random prediction would have 0 correlation)

Please note that the numbers specified above will change in future as we’ll rerun your algorithm whenever new synthesis data is available.
