Recently there has been significant interest in evolving genetic regulatory networks with a user-determined behaviour. It is unclear whether or not artificial evolution of biochemical networks can be of direct benefit for or biological relevance to Systems Biology. This article highlights some pitfalls when concluding from artificially evolved genetic regulatory networks to real networks. This article also gives a (brief) review of some previous attempts to evolve genetic regulatory networks
