Tribyhrid Cross Solver


Recommended Posts

In my genetics class we have been making really long ass punit squares that are 4x4 through 64x64. It takes so long to solve those so I thought why not just have my computer do it for me? Since that chapter is over (I think) I am releasing the code online for anyone else who may be in a genetics class...

Here is the code:


# Newbi3
# 2/3/14
# This program will calculate the possibilities for different traits

import os
import time
import sys

# A list of traits from each parrent
parent1 = []
parent2 = []

def main():
	''' This function will launch the program '''
	while 1:
		if checkTraitLengths():
			print "Calculating results..."
			print "You need an equal amount of traits for each parent!"
			print "Try again!"
	offSpringTraits = calculateResults()
	for i in range(0, len(offSpringTraits)):

def getParentsTraits():
	''' This function will get a list of traits for each parent from the user '''
	global parent1, parent2
	print "Enter the allele of parent 1 seperated by spaces below"
	parent1 = raw_input("Parent 1 traits> ").split(" ")
	print "Enter the allele of parent 2 seperated by spaces below"
	parent2 = raw_input("Parent 2 traits> ").split(" ")

def checkTraitLengths():
	''' This function will check to make sure there are an equal amount of traits for each parent '''
	if len(parent1) == len(parent2):
		return True
		return False

def calculateResults():
	''' This function will calculate the results '''
	offSpringTraits = []

	for i in range(0, len(parent1)):
		offSpringTraits.append("\t[ " + parent1[i] + " ]")

	for a in range(0, len(parent1)):
		offSpringTraits.append("\n[" + parent2[a] + "]\t")

		for b in range(0, len(parent1)):
			offSpringTraits.append(" " + formatAlleles(list(parent1[b] + parent2[a])) + " |\t")

	return offSpringTraits

def formatAlleles(traits):
	''' This function will format the alleles '''
	formatted = []

	for a in range(0, len(traits)):
		if traits[a] != "":
			t1 = traits[a]
			for b in range(0, len(traits)):
				t2 = traits[b]
				if a != b and t2.lower() == t1.lower():
					traits[a] = ""

	return ''.join(formatted)

def saveToFile(results):
	''' This function will save the results to a text file '''
	save = False
	while 1:
		toSave = raw_input("\n\nWould you like to save this table? (yes/no): ")
		if toSave.split(" ") == "":
			print "Please say yes or no"
			if toSave == "yes":
				save = True
	if save:
		while 1:
			name = raw_input("Please type the name of the file: ")
			if name.split(" ") == "":
				print "The name can not be empty!"

		f = open(name, "w")
		for i in range(0, len(results)):
		print "Saved file as " + name
	print "Good Bye."
