Carl Zimmer Article

Here is a Carl Zimmer article that pertains to a particular project I have. I thought it was interesting and worth sharing.

One thing the digital organisms do particularly well is evolve.“ Avida is not a simulation of evolution; it is an instance of it,” Pennock says. “All the core parts of the Darwinian process are there. These things replicate, they mutate, they are competing with one another. The very process of natural selection is happening there. If that’s central to the definition of life, then these things count.”
