We describe an environment for evolutionary computation that supports the movement of information from genome to phenotype with the possibility of one or more intermediate transformations. Our notion of a phenotype is more than a simple alternate representation of the binary genome. The construction of a phenotype is sufficiently different from the genome as to require its generation by a procedure that we call a gene expression algorithm. We discuss various reasons why benefits should accrue… CONTINUE READING
