Outlook for GSA

We expect that Genetic Self-assembly will be useful in nanotechnological and biotechnological construction of complex systems. The work points to the general utility of encoding self-assembling building blocks in biological evolution, for general problem solution.

The self assembly algorithm we employed was deterministic and established the feasibility of inductive generalization with genetic self assembly. We aim to extend this work to more realistic models of self assembly, especially including erroneous assembly in a physical environment with thermodynamic fluctuations, structures in three dimensions and more freedom in geometrical shape space.
