                 \cite{Langdon:2013:ieeeTEC} describes a recent
                 experiment in which a state-of-the-art Bioinformatics
                 program was manipulated by GP to give a variant
                 automatically tuned to a particular task. The program
                 consists of 50000 lines of C++. Evolution was able to
                 find a change which speeds it up on the chosen task on
                 average by a factor of 70, yet still give good answers,
                 indeed the results are slightly better.

                 GISMOE uses a BNF grammar specific to Bowtie2 when
                 mutating genetically improved programs (GIP). Patches
                 delete, move or insert existing lines of code. No new
                 code is created. Mutants' fitness is measured by
                 running them using DNA from The Thousand Genomes
