The Evolutionary Systems Laboratory is a part of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Department of Biology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. Our main interest is in building biologically-inspired systems ('brains', 'bodies'), combining various time scales: behaviour, development and evolution. Our research lies at the intersection of artificial life (including artificial embryology), evolutionary biology and computational neuroscience. We are developing artificial life sotware platforms and tools for the analysis of evolution of genomes, evolution and complexity of gene regulatory networks, and for the analysis of biological diversity.
