  abstract =     "Biological sequence analysis presents interesting
                 challenges for machine learning. Using one of the most
                 important current problems -- the recognition of
                 functional target sites for microRNA molecules -- as an
                 example, we show how joining multiple genetic
                 programming classifiers improves accuracy and stability
                 tremendously. When moving from single classifiers to
                 bagging and boosting with cross validation and
                 parameter optimisation, you require more computing
                 power. We use a special-purpose search processor for
                 fitness evaluation, which renders boosted genetic
                 programming practical for our purposes.",
