Summary of final setup produced by the alternative algorithm. a) the distribution of SampleType characteristic across the plates; b) the distribution of Race characteristic across the plates; c) the distribution of AgeGrp characteristic across the plates; d) the index of generated setups versus value of the objective function. The blue diamond indicates the first setup generated, and the red diamond marks the final selected setup.
