[Strategy market] No boost in small multiloops

I would like a strategy, that forbids other colors than yellow in the multiloop ring, if there is only one nucleotide between the multiloop arms arms, litterally or like in the Things to test lab, in average. So only in this small type of multiloop, forbid other colors than yellow at all multiloopring spots. This is for multiloops with tree arms or more.

Penalize with -1 for each other colored nucleotide than yellow in multiloopring.

Dear, Eli

Your strategy has been added to our implementation queue with task id 56. You can check the schedule of the implementation here.

ETA of the implementation is 9/6/2011

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 20 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 0.0641309155241. (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.

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!
