  abstract =     "In this paper, we compared the efficacy of observation
                 based modelling approach using a genetic algorithm with
                 the regular statistical analysis as an alternative
                 methodology in plant research. Preliminary experimental
                 data on in vitro rooting was taken for this study with
                 an aim to understand the effect of charcoal and
                 naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) on successful rooting and
                 also to optimize the two variables for maximum result.
                 Observation-based modelling, as well as traditional
                 approach, could identify NAA as a critical factor in
                 rooting of the plantlets under the experimental
                 conditions employed. Symbolic regression analysis using
                 the software deployed here optimised the treatments
                 studied and was successful in identifying the complex
                 non-linear interaction among the variables, with
                 minimalistic preliminary data. The presence of charcoal
                 in the culture medium has a significant impact on root
                 generation by reducing basal callus mass formation.
                 Such an approach is advantageous for establishing in
                 vitro culture protocols as these models will have
                 significant potential for saving time and expenditure
                 in plant tissue culture laboratories, and it further
                 reduces the need for specialised background.",
