What type of problems I should expect?
There will be two types of problems: with exact and approximate answers.
For problems with approximate answers the test inputs will be downloadable files. Your task will be to find good solutions for these tests and upload them to the testing system. Here, almost anything can be used to solve the problems, including existing bioinformatics tools, libraries and frameworks, but excluding help of others.
In the case of interactive problem the interaction protocol through the text files will be specified in the problem statement.
