                 over probabilistic program traces are developed
                 firstly. These methods combine expressiveness of
                 Turing-complete probabilistic languages, in which
                 arbitrary generative models can be defined, and search
                 effectiveness of meta-heuristic methods. To use these
                 methods, one should only specify a generative model of
                 objects of interest and a fitness function over them
                 without necessity to implement domain-specific genetic
                 operators or mappings from objects to and from bit
                 strings. On the other hand, implemented methods showed
                 better quality than the traditional mh-query on several
                 optimization tasks. Thus, these results can contribute
                 to both fields of genetic programming and probabilistic
