An Evolutionary System using Development and Artificial Genetic Regulatory Networks

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Biology presents incomparable, but desirable, characteristics compared to engineered systems. Inspired by biological development, we have devised a multi-layered design architecture that attempts to capture many of the favorable characteristics of biological mechanisms for application to design problems. In this paper we have identified and implemented essential features of Genetic Regulatory Networks (GRNs) and cell signaling so that our system exhibits self-organization which is reminiscent of aspects of biological systems.
