What strategies are you using to solve the Ribosome Pilot Challenge?

 Some of mine are:
1) dropped energy difference as much as possible.
2) removed Cs and then Us inside loops as long as energy diff. decreases.
3) Clean up red "error" locations if energy diff. decreases.
4) Drop energy diff only if absolute energy increases.
5) Drop energy diff only if absolute energy decreases.

If anyone wants to try pasting solutions from the Ribosome Pilot Challenge Warm-Up puzzles into the full ribosome (an approach I'm trying with so far not a great deal of success) the following info showing the nucleotide ranges of the domains may be helpful. Apologies if it duplicates info available elsewhere.


Domain 1 (9-556)
Domain 2 (560-912)
Domain 3 (921-1396)


Domain 1 (18-562)
Domain 2 (562-1268)  
Domain 3 (1271-1647) 
Domain 4 (1648-2009) 
Domain 5 (2043-2625) 

Note Domains 1 and 2 of the 23s puzzle overlap by one: I'm guessing the ranges were expanded for the previous puzzle set.
