Transcribing DNA Into RNA
We are introduced to the concept of RNA strings that are composed of an alphabet containing the letters ‘A’, ‘C’, ‘G’ and ‘U’.
Given a DNA string
t we are asked to transcribe it to an RNA
u by replacing all occurences of ‘T’ in
t with ‘U’ in
Here I’m skipping reading from a file since we covered this in the previous exercise.
Python comes with a set of functions to modify strings. One such function is
str.replace(old, new[, count]) which returns a copy of the string
str with all occurences of
old replaced by
We can trivially solve the exercise by calling this function on our input data:
