Our work to date has reviewed novel directed intervention crossover approaches as an effective way of guiding the crossover process. These techniques have been successfully applied to the scheduling of both bio-control agents for mushroom farming and chemotherapy drugs for cancer treatment and in both instances outperform Uniform Crossover (UC). Unlike traditional UC, the directed intervention approaches actively choose an intervention level and spread based on the ¿tness of the parents selected for crossover. This paper reports on the results derived from this study thus far.
