Bowers, Chris P. (2005) Formation of modules in a computational model of embryogeny. In: Congress on Evolutionary Computation.
An investigation is conducted into the effects of a complex mapping between genotype and phenotype upon a simulated evolutionary process. A model of embryogeny is utilised to grow simple French flag like patterns. The system is shown to display a phenotypic robustness to damage and it is argued that this is a result of a modularity forming within the mapping process which causes a functional grouping of sections of the genotype.
