This paper addresses the use of particular encoding schemes in evolutionary systems. We define three paradigms of DNA encodings: non-compartmentalized, partially compartmentalized, and fully compartmentalized. We demonstrate that there is a significant and increasing advantage to the use of partially and fully compartmentalized models as the complexity of a structure increases. Implications for the design of evolutionary systems including biological systems are discussed
