A reproduction method for artificial lifeforms where: * Each agent has a single strand of genetic information. * Each child has two parents. * Each parent contributes approximately half of its genetic information to the offspring.
A species that reproduces, transmitting genetic information to
its offspring. Minimal complete definition: all except
The basic unit of hereditary information for an agent. The type signature for the agent's genome is [Base a].
Recombines the genetic information from two parents, creating genetic information for potential offspring. Typically this involves the following steps: 1. Recombine the two strands of genetic information (one from each parent) to obtain two new strands. 2. Discard one strand, and return the remaining one.
Builds an agent based on the genome provided, if it is possible to do so.
