Welcome to the updated Biota.org!

Biota.org was created in 1996 to promote and assist in the engineering of artificial life: complete, biologically-inspired, synthetic ecosystems and organisms.

This involved the creation and deployment of digital tools and environments for simulation, research, and learning about living systems both natural and artificial. These tools ranged from simple genetic algorithms to full multi-user virtual environments.

The dissemination of interdisciplinary concepts is an important aspect of promoting the field of artificial life.

To this end, Biota.org welcomes members from all scientific disciplines including evolutionary science, microbiology, medicine, computer science, robotics, nano-technology, palaeontology, social science, and artificial intelligence.

Biota also encourages artists, technologists, philosophers, and educators to join in and add their input to the developing body of experimental work.

If you are new to the site, read about why Biota.org was created, listen to some of the people who have been involved with Biota.org, and check out some of the updated links from all over the world.

From 1997 to 2001, Biota held the Digital Biota conferences. You can read the proceedings and see pictorial reports of these events here.
