@abarnert If things get to large, I will need it to act like an in-RAM dict ideally. Thank you for the module recommendations.

comment How much RAM does data take up?
Data sets I typically work with are something called fastq files: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FASTQ_format I know there are optimized methods for such data as well. I typically store each read (with its ID, sequence and quality) as a class and make a dictionary of type read. Eventually, that will run out of memory when I analyze something large enough.

@ShinTakezou does it matter at the nature of the data stored? For example if I were to store 32-bit ints, or 8-bit ints for my numeric data? I know python's typing is dynamic, but if I could specify it, as one would in other languages more rountinely, how much of a difference does that make?

comment Probability of drawing some number when randomly selecting subsets of size L
I think I see what you mean. Part of the solution is how many ways I can choose N + 1 - L subsets from K draws. The next part is in how many of those subsets does each number occur. I am yet sure how to consolidate the fact that I know there are M possible subsets with how many of those subsets I know contains come number Xi. It does follow a pattern, but I don't yet know how to express it.
