2008 Journal of Computational Science and Technology  
Comparison of evolutionary structural optimization (ESO) and SX demonstrates the global search ability and flexibility of SX.  ...  The capabilities of stress-based crossover operators were validated through a number of experiments.  ...  The fitness value of each individual determines whether it can be passed into the next generation or not. In evolutionary algorithms, penalty function is often used to handle constraints.  ...

Automatic Discovery of Families of Network Generative Processes [chapter]

Telmo Menezes, Camille Roth
2019 SpringerBriefs in Statistics  
Machine learning techniques have lately been introduced to assist the automatic discovery of generative models.  ...  These approaches may more broadly be described as "symbolic regression", where fundamental network dynamic functions, rather than just parameters, are evolved through genetic programming.  ...  We further acknowledge interesting discussions with Jean-Philippe Cointet and David Fourquet regarding generative families, as well as the constructive feedback of our anonymous reviewers.  ...

Evolutionary Optimization of Protein Folding

Cédric Debès, Minglei Wang, Gustavo Caetano-Anollés, Frauke Gräter, Ruth Nussinov
2013 PLoS Computational Biology  
These values were mapped onto an evolutionary timeline of domain appearance derived from a phylogenomic analysis of protein domains in 989 fully-sequenced genomes.  ...  Simulations generally involve an algorithm that mimics the evolutionary accumulation of mutations.  ...  Instead, our analysis revealed a bimodal evolutionary pattern, with folding speed increasing and decreasing before and after *1.5 Gya, respectively.  ...

Randomness in biology

THOMAS HEAMS
2014 Mathematical Structures in Computer Science  
Randomness is in many ways an inherent feature of evolutionary biology and genetics.  ...  Indeed, simple deterministic systems may generate unpredictable outcomes at the individual level, but reproducible patterns at the population level.  ...  In addition, it also challenges the 'program' metaphor, since from this viewpoint, reproducible patterns of gene expression are not achieved through precise regulations at the single-cell level resulting  ...

Reactive Search Optimization; Application to Multiobjective Optimization Problems

Amir Mosavi, Atieh Vaezipour
2012 Applied Mathematics  
During the last few years we have witnessed impressive developments in the area of stochastic local search techniques for intelligent optimization and Reactive Search Optimization.  ...  The procedure is further compared with the excising novel method of Interactive Multiobjective Optimization and Decision-Making, using Evolutionary method (I-MODE).  ...  In developing RSO in terms of learning capabilities there has been a progressive shift from the decision maker to the algorithm itself, through machine learning techniques [8] .  ...

Evolutionarily conserved networks of residues mediate allosteric communication in proteins

Gürol M. Süel, Steve W. Lockless, Mark A. Wall, Rama Ranganathan
2002 Natural Structural Biology  
The general principles of protein structure that underlie this process remain unknown.  ...  These predictions were verified through mutagenesis, suggesting that the statistical measurement of coupling through sequence analysis is a good reporter of thermodynamic coupling.  ...  These data were mapped on serial sections through the atomic stucture of a prototypcial GPCR family member, bovine rhodopsin (Fig. 2) .  ...

The close DAO+dM binary RE J0720-318: a stratified white dwarf with a thin H layer and a possible circumbinary disk [article]

Matthew R. Burleigh, Martin A. Barstow, Paul D. Dobbie
1996 arXiv   pre-print
These results have important implications for our understanding of the evolutionary status of DAO white dwarfs in particular, and for post-CE binaries in general.  ...  Our general reduction techniques are described in more detail in our earlier work (e.g. Barstow, Holberg and Koester 1994) .  ...  By using the dither mode to average out flat field variations, a substantial fraction of this fixed pattern noise can be removed.  ...

Genetic structure and bio-climatic modeling support allopatric over parapatric speciation along a latitudinal gradient

Maurizio Rossetto, Chris B Allen, Katie AG Thurlby, Peter H Weston, Melita L Milner
2012 BMC Evolutionary Biology  
Our aim was to use the characteristic distributional patterns in Telopea to test whether it reflected the evolutionary models of allopatric or parapatric speciation.  ...  Genetic structure and the signature of admixture in overlap zones was described using the Bayesian clustering methods implemented in STUCTURE and NewHybrids respectively.  ...  We employed this environmental niche modeling (ENM) technique to determine whether present day habitat characteristics correspond to genetic divergence between taxa.  ...

2015 PLoS ONE  
Ordination and clustering patterns were largely congruent among intrinsic (heritable) traits (nDNA, mtDNA, phenotype), and discordance is explained by biological processes (e.g., ontogeny, hybridization  ...  While the reason for these conflicting results is straightforward, i.e., climate develops and changes through non-evolutionary mechanisms, the implications are underappreciated for practical systematics  ...  We ran one million generations total and sampled at every 1000 generations.  ...
