  abstract =     "In DNA-based computation, the problem instances are
                 encoded in DNA oligonucleotides that must hybridise
                 correctly to produce a solution. Depending on reaction
                 conditions, oligonucleotides can bind with imperfect
                 matching of complementary base pairs. These mismatched
                 hybridisations are a potential source of errors. For
                 reliable DNA-based computation, the encodings should be
                 a minimum distance apart. This distance could be
                 estimated from empirical curves of DNA melting, but
                 they remain difficult to produce. In fact, the
                 probability of a good encoding in a randomly chosen
                 sample goes to zero fairly quickly with the number of
                 errors for arbitrary encoding lengths. We use genetic
                 programming methods to nd good encodings and analyse
                 their performance in actual laboratory experiments.",
