This paper reports a system based on the recently proposed evolutionary paradigm of gene expression programming (GEP). This enhanced system, called EGIPSYS, has features specially suited to deal with symbolic regression problems. Amongst the new features implemented in EGIPSYS are: new selection methods, chromosomes of variable length, a new approach to(More)
This paper describes a biomolecular classification methodology based on multilayer perceptron neural networks. The system developed is used to classify enzymes found in the Protein Data Bank. The primary goal of classification, here, is to infer the function of an (unknown) enzyme by analysing its structural similarity to a given family of enzymes. A new(More)
This work describes the use of a recently proposed technique – gene expression programming – for knowledge discovery in the data mining task of data classification. We propose a new method for rule encoding and genetic operators that preserve rule integrity, and implemented a system, named GEPCLASS. Due to its encoding scheme, the system allows the(More)
This paper presents the implementation of an environment for the evolution of one-dimensional cellular automata using a recon-figurable logic device. This configware is aimed at evaluating the dynamic behavior of automata rules, generated by a computer system. The performance of the configware system was compared with an equivalent software-based approach(More)
The simulation of the dynamics of a cellular systems based on cellular automata (CA) can be computationally expensive. This is particularly true when such simulation is part of a procedure of rule induction to find suitable transition rules for the CA. Several efforts have been described in the literature to make this problem more treatable. This work(More)
Ion-exchange distribution coefficients are reported for several transition and post-transition elements in solutions of hydrochloric acid (0.1-3.0M) and thiourea on AG50W resins. Some typical elution curves illustrate use of the systems with special reference to the separation of small amounts of gold, palladium, platinum, rhodium and iridium from large(More)
The choleretic effect of 3-butoxy-1-phenoxypropanol-(2), Febuprol (INN), was examined in healthy volunteer subjects. In a dose range from 50 to 200 mg, the total bile is dose-dependent and excretion is significantly increased. The excretion of the bile constituents bile acids, bilirubin, cholesterol and phospholipids is increased proportionally with the(More)
In previous pharmacological experiments with the choleretic agent Febuprol, healthy subjects showed a significant increase in bile flow and its constituents in the acute experiment. As a consequence of these results we have carried out a double-blind cross-over therapeutic trial with Febuprol in 50 patients with a cholecystopathic symptom complex. After a(More)
