Evolving a Self-Repairing, Self-Regulating, French Flag Organism

  title={Evolving a Self-Repairing, Self-Regulating, French Flag Organism},
  author={Julian Francis Miller},
A method for evolving programs that construct multicellular structures (organisms) is described. The paper concentrates on the difficult problem of evolving a cell program that constructs a fixed size French flag. We obtain and analyze an organism that shows a remarkable ability to repair itself when subjected to severe damage. Its behaviour resembles the regenerative power of some living organisms.
