In this paper, we describe a new digital genetics model based on the Aevol artificial life simulator.
Aevol is a computational platform designed to study populations of
digital organisms evolving under various conditions. It has been extended in two directions. First, we have extended the genomic code from a binary one
to a 4-base one, allowing for more realistic genomic sequence and eases the usage of Aevol as a benchmarking tool for
comparative genomics. Second, we have replaced the Aevol continuous phenotype representation by a discrete one inspired by Fisher Geometric Model. By doing so, we will be able to validate Aevol results against population genetics theory.
