                 Programming has been used for bug fixing, performance
                 improvement and parallelisation of programs through the
                 modification of source code. Where an evolutionary
                 computation algorithm, such as Genetic Programming, is
                 to be applied to similar code manipulation tasks, the
                 complexity and size of source code for real-world
                 software poses a scalability problem. To address this,
                 we intend to inspect how the Software Engineering
                 concepts of modularity, granularity and localisation of
                 change can be reformulated as additional mechanisms
                 within a Genetic Programming algorithm.",
