I have the following problem:

The number of steps is the number of genes, including the starting gene. Otherwise the example would have only 8 steps.

With this definition of steps I need 26 steps from ACAC to GGGG.

Other opinions?

I revoke my question. The text of the challenge is updated.

Previously:
For example, starting with the gene [‘C’, ‘T’, ‘T’, ‘G’, ‘G’], we can convert it to [‘G’, ‘G’, ‘G’, ‘G’, ‘G’] in the following nine steps:

Now: ... eight steps:

So you need only 25 steps from ACAC to GGGG.

Problem: When Oded changed a text, he marked it as update. Gadi changes a text without remarks.
