Table 1 Simulated genetics in an individual

From: A Boolean gene regulatory model of heterosis and speciation

Biological entities Our simulation
Gene Node
Gene activity (e.g. expression, post-translational modification, etc.) Binary node state
Regulatory interaction Connection (edge) between nodes
Allele logic function and potential for in- and out-going connections that determine the state of a node and its function in the dynamics of the network
Gamete Haploid list of alleles selected at random from a diploid individual, combined with another gamete, forms a new diploid
