Abstract

We present what we believe is the first attempt to physically reconstruct the exploratory mechanism of genetic regulatory networks. Feedback plays a crucial role during developmental processes and its mechanisms have recently become much clearer due to evidence from evolutionary developmental biology. We believe that without similar mechanisms of in- teraction and feedback, digital genomes cannot guide themselves across functional search spaces in a way that fully exploits a domain's resources, particularly in the complex search domains of real-world physics. Our architecture is designed to let evolution utilise feedback as part of its mechanism of exploration.
