Maternal influence on offspring goes beyond strict nuclear (DNA) inheritance: inherited maternal mRNA, mitochondria, caring and nurturing are all additional sources that affect offspring development, and they can be also shaped by evolution. These additional factors are called maternal effects, and their important role in evolution is well established experimentally. This paper presents two models for maternal effects, based on a genetic algorithm and simulated development of neural networks.doi:10.1145/1068009.1068032 dblp:conf/gecco/MatosSA05 fatcat:vdnznrgarzhpzoyaay4ng5zaau
