  abstract =     "In human genetics it is now possible to measure large
                 numbers of DNA sequence variations across the human
                 genome. Given current knowledge about biological
                 networks and disease processes it seems likely that
                 disease risk can best be modelled by interactions
                 between biological components, which may be examined as
                 interacting DNA sequence variations. The machine
                 learning challenge is to effectively explore
                 interactions in these datasets to identify combinations
                 of variations which are predictive of common human
                 diseases. Genetic programming is a promising approach
                 to this problem. The goal of this study is to examine
                 the role that an expert knowledge aware initialiser can
                 play in the framework of genetic programming. We show
                 that this expert knowledge aware initializer
                 outperforms both a random initializer and an
                 enumerative initialiser.",
