Hi, anyone has the python solution for USACO 2017 US Open Contest, Silver Problem 2. Bovine Genomics
My solution pass all tests except 7 and 10 because of execution timeout. I cannot find any python solution from the internet, it will be great if someone can post the final solution.
yeah me too, my code passes all except for 10 (time limit)
Python might be too slow for that problem given the large constant factor. I highly recommend switching to another language like Java and C++.
I figured it out! (with the help of a friend)
It turns out that global variables take longer to access than local variables, so if your issue was the same as mine, putting your entire code into a function and then calling it should cut down on time.
Nice! However, for many other USACO problems, Python code (even when put in a function) will TLE on some test cases.
