Tom Nesmith
2002 The American Archivist

Open Ended Evolution of 3D Multicellular Development Controlled by Gene Regulatory Networks

Michal Joachimczak, Borys Wróbel
2012 Artificial Life 13  
The size of the genome and the size of the network are not limited.  ...  We analyze the evolutionary history in independent runs to see if a similar area of the phenotypic space is explored and discuss the features of evolutionary histories in the novelty search.  ...  Whenever a considerably novel (with novelty above a threshold) phenotype is discovered, it is copied to the archive, and it remains there as a representative of its type.  ...
