The switch() statement isn't really evil, right?
By Clay Breshears (Intel) Posted on 09/26/13 15
In my current position, I work to optimize and parallelize codes that deal with genomic data, e.g., DNA, RNA, proteins, etc. To be universally available, many of the input files holding DNA samples (called reads) are text files full of the characters 'A', 'C', 'G', and 'T'. (It's not necessary to...
