  abstract =     "A Genetic Programming (GP) framework for
                 classification is presented in this paper and applied
                 to a publicly available biomedical microarray dataset
                 representing a collection of expression measurements
                 from colon biopsy experiments [3]. We report
                 experimental results obtained using two different well
                 known fitness criteria: the area under the receiving
                 operating curve (ROC) and the percentage of correctly
                 classified instances (CCI). These results, and their
                 comparison with the ones obtained by three
                 non-evolutionary Machine Learning methods (Support
                 Vector Machines, Voted Perceptron and Random Forests)
                 on the same data, seem to hint that GP is a promising
                 technique for this kind of classification both from the
                 viewpoint of the accuracy of the proposed solutions and
                 of the generalisation ability. These results are
                 encouraging and should pave the way to a deeper study
                 of GP for classification applied to biomedical
                 microarray data sets.",
