The ability of evolution to influence its own course in micro-organisms such as bacteria is a desirable property for computational systems. As a step towards exploiting this, we define a metamodel for the Evolution of Evolution. The metamodel is based on the concepts of structure and process, which are embodied together as the Machine. By describing different types Machines and structures we can capture a flexible metamodel to form the underpinnings for a new generation of evolutionary algorithms.
