Computer Science and Evolution

Chromosomes splitting and mutating

Understanding the way species evolve, adapting to their ever changing environments through natural selection, is perhaps one of the greatest feats of science. Darwin's theory of natural selection gives an explanation of how all of life can come about just through the passing of information from generation to generation, mutation and the pressures of survival. We now have overwhelming evidence that Darwin got it right. Computer Scientists are helping to add to the evidence. Computer Scientists have also been inspired by the way nature solves such difficult problems of surviving in a harsh environment to come up with ways for computers to solve problems too in Genetic Algorithms.
