  abstract =     "In this paper, we use Genetic Programming (GP) to
                 define a set of transforms on the space of grey scale
                 images. The motivation is to allow an evolutionary
                 algorithm means of transforming a set of image patterns
                 into a more classifiable form. To this end, we
                 introduce the notion of a Transformbased Evolvable
                 Feature (TEF), a moment value extracted from a
                 GP-transformed image, used in a classification task.
                 Unlike many previous approaches, the TEF allows the
                 whole image space to be searched and augmented. TEFs
                 are instantiated through Cartesian Genetic Programming,
                 and applied to a medical image classification task,
                 that of detecting muscular dystrophy-indicating
                 inclusions in cell images. It is shown that the
                 inclusion of a single TEF allows for significantly
                 superior classification relative to predefined features
