Development of antibiotic regimens using graph based evolutionary algorithms

"evolutionary algorithms in the development of antibiotic regimens given to production animals. [...] Treatment regimens were found that provided decreased antibiotic resistance relative to conventional methods while providing nearly the same benefits as conventional antibiotic regimes. By using a graph to control the information flow in the evolutionary algorithm, a variety of solutions along the Pareto front can be found automatically for this and other multi-objective problems."
