We're actively looking for ideas on how to improve Weekly Challenges and would love to hear what you think!Submit Feedback
A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.
This week - let's do an interesting viz! We have sourced the RNA sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 (which is responsible for COVID-19) and would like to put it into a gridded visualization.
Since RNA is made of up the base pairs of G,T,A, and C, your visualization should have four colors. When creating the grid, try to order the sequencing from left to right: For example, the first base pairs are A-T-T-A. Make sure that A is row 1 column 1, T is row 1 column 2, and so on...
Make note of how many columns make up a row or what colors you select are entirely up to you (our solution has 178 columns)!
If you want to take it a step further, let's see if you can create something new entirely!

Took me a few tries to land on this solution. Glad to see that my thought process matched @patrick_digan's excellent first solution.
Not 100% sure if I've approached this correctly but here's my video solution for it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RuHrWjVtWs&list=PL18SpOXDj-KMUD4YwWC5vZaUsIa7drxNZ&index=13&t=0s
My solution attached. Went a different route from most of the other solutions I've seen.
