Classic Computer Science Problems in ̶P̶y̶t̶h̶o̶n̶ Scala — Trivial Compression

I recently purchased the book Classic Computer Science Problems in Python to help me brush up on my python. As I’m working through the Python code in the book, I’m taking some time to also port the Python to Scala. Below is an example the illustrates trivial compression for efficiently storing genes. A little science refresher, genes are typically made of Five nucleobases — adenine (A), cytosine ©, guanine (G), thymine (T), and uracil (U). Uracil (U) and thymine (T) are very similar except uracil is found in RNA, thymine…
