Evolutionary computing and boron

Today's New York Times features an article describing a new discovery about the element boron, made in part by evolutionary computing. Full details of the discovery are provided in a January 29, 2009 letter in Nature (subscription required). They (Oganov et al.) used a special purpose evolutionary algorithm called USPEX that is not really described in the Nature piece, but it is described elsewhere including here.
