Uncovering the DNA of programs.
Good programs    
Fair programs  
Bad programs 


A process is an instance of a computer program that is being executed. It contains the program code and its current activity and is made up of multiple threads of execution that execute instructions concurrently. A computer program is a passive collection of instructions; a process is the actual execution of those instructions. Several processes may be associated with the same program; for example, opening up several instances of the same program often means more than one process is being executed.
