Table 2 Population simulation

From: A Boolean gene regulatory model of heterosis and speciation

Population Group of 40 networks (reduced to 10 in every round of selection)
Regulatory dynamics The network passes through different states depending on environment and wiring, until it arrives at a stable or recurring attractor state
Phenotype Steady state or state cycle of the states of the network’s nodes (attractor) caused by the network dynamics under a certain environment
Fitness Similarity between phenotype and ideal phenotype in a specific environment
