[Strategy Market] [Beta test experiment] Title: Only As in the Loops

If any nucleotide is *not* supposed to be bonded, then let it be assigned A (Adenine).

Thank you,

First edit:
PS: Perhaps above is more like a “design” strategy? A scoring strategy would be:

Then give a point to every un-bonded nt that was assigned A, and give zero points if the un-bonded nt was assigned U, G, or C.

Dear merryskies,

Your strategy has been added to our implementation queue with task id 3. You can check the schedule of the implementation here.

ETA of the implementation is tomorrow, 6/3/2011.

Thanks for sharing your idea!

Dear merryskies,

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

Length : Your strategy was implmented with 7 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 0.17. (1.0 is the best score, -1.0 is the worst score. A completely random prediction would have 0 correlation)

More detailed result has been posted on the strategy market page. Thank you for sharing your idea, and we look forward to other brilliant strategies from you!

Thank you, Jeehyung! This is an amazing experiment!

Hi Merry, It turns out we had an error in the implementation.

We fixed the bug and your ordering score went up to 0.21. More detailed result has been posted on the strategy market page.

We are sorry about the trouble!

That is quite alright, Jeehyung. Thank you again for providing the programming!

Dear merryskies,

We made a change in the way we score the ordering. (Detail : Before if your algorithm said score of A and B is the same when they are not, it decreased your ordering score. In the new scoring, such decision does neither increase nor decreases your ordering score).

Your ordering score is now 0.292
