Molecular insights into evolution of phenotypes
s modeled in silico through replication and mutation in a flow reactor. The approach towards a predefined structure is monitored and reconstructed in terms of an uninterrupted series of phenotypes from initial stucture to target, called relay series. We give a novel definition of continuity in evolution which identifies discontinuities as major changes in molecular phenotypes.
