  abstract =     "This work is a study of the viability of using complex
                 building blocks (termed molecules) within the
                 evolutionary computation paradigm of CGP; extending it
                 to MolCGP. Increasing the complexity of the building
                 blocks increases the design space that is to be
                 explored to find a solution; thus, experiments were
                 undertaken to find out whether this change affects the
                 optimum parameter settings required. It was observed
                 that the same degree of neutrality and (greedy) 1+4
                 evolution strategy gave optimum performance. The
                 Computational Effort used to solve a series of
                 benchmark problems was calculated, and compared with
                 that used for the standard implementation of CGP.
                 Significantly less Computational Effort was exerted by
                 MolCGP in 3 out of 4 of the benchmark problems tested.
                 Additionally, one of the evolved solutions to the 2-bit
                 multiplier problem was examined, and it was observed
                 that functionality present in the molecules, was
                 exploited by evolution in a way that would be highly
                 unlikely if using standard design techniques.",
