Gene PropertiesModulus Evo2
OnlineModulus Evo2The Gene type exposes the following members.

Public propertyEpigeneticCount
The epigenetic generation count. If set to a non-zero value, will cause the genetic algorithm to not express this gene. Epigenetics allows for changes in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence, temporarily or through multiple generations. For example if this gene codes for risk aversion and if the evaluation function evaluates the entire Genome to having been too risky, then the gene may be temporarily silenced within the evaluation function. This is done by setting EpigeneticCount to a positive value representing the number of generations to silence the gene before it is reactivated. The purpose of this feature is to provide momentum to overcome local optima.
Public propertyMax
Maximum value for the gene.
Public propertyMin
Minimum value for the gene.
Public propertyStepSize
The step size for the gene value.
Public propertyTag
Helps identify the gene.
Public propertyValue
The gene value.
