                 genetic programming is presented in this work. We apply
                 the idea of plague (high desease of individuals). We
                 show that although plagues are generally considered as
                 negative events, they can help populations to save
                 computing time and at the same time surviving
                 individuals can reach high peaks in the fitness
                 landscape.",
