Repeated Sequences in Linear Genetic Programming Genomes

Biological chromosomes are replete with repetitive sequences, microsatellites, SSR tracts, ALU, etc. in their DNA base sequences. We discover hierarchical repeating sequences (building blocks?) are evolved by genetic programming in linear Mackey Glass chaotic time series prediction programs. Paper. Poster.
