This involves the creation and deployment of digital tools and environments for simulation, research, and learning about living systems both natural and artificial. These tools could range from simple genetic algorithms all the way up to full multi-user virtual environments. will seek to nourish a community of interest and to bring the experience of interacting with digital biota to a large audience through the medium of the Internet.
