Genotype-phenotype maps for gene networks: from evolution to computation

Abstract:

One of the most fundamental and least understood elements of evolution is the mapping between genotype and phenotype. Recent work on genotype-phenotype (GP) maps suggests that these maps show properties which may have important evolutionary implications. These properties include a skewed distribution of genotypes over phenotypes, linear scaling between phenotype robustness and the logarithm of phenotype frequency, and a positive correlation between phenotype robustness and evolvability.
