  abstract =     "Difficult benchmark problems are in increasing demand
                 in Genetic Programming (GP). One problem seeing
                 increased usage is the oral bioavailability problem,
                 which is often presented as a challenging problem to
                 both GP and other machine learning methods. However,
                 few properties of the bioavailability data set have
                 been demonstrated, so attributes that make it a
                 challenging problem are largely unknown. This work
                 uncovers important properties of the bioavailability
                 data set, and suggests that the perceived difficulty in
                 this problem can be partially attributed to a lack of
                 pre-processing, including features within the data set
                 that contain no information, and contradictory
                 relationships between the dependent and independent
                 features of the data set. The paper then re-examines
                 the performance of GP on this data set, and
                 contextualises this performance relative to other
                 regression methods. Results suggest that a large
                 component of the observed performance differences on
                 the bioavailability data set can be attributed to
                 variance in the selection of training and testing data.
                 Differences in performance between GP and other methods
                 disappear when multiple training/testing splits are
                 used within experimental work, with performance
                 typically no better than a null modelling approach of
                 reporting the mean of the training data.",
