  abstract =     "The phenomenon of code growth is well documented in
                 genetic programming. Several well supported theories
                 exist to explain code growth, each of which focuses on
                 introns, sections of code that do not contribute to
                 fitness. However, several researchers have pointed out
                 that these theories, and code growth itself, does not
                 seem to depend upon the presence of introns. In this
                 paper we show for the first time that code growth can
                 occur, albeit quite slowly, even with exons that have a
                 significant impact on fitness.",
