We develop a computer simulation of several cellular processes seen in amoebae, including the production and regulation of proteins via a genome; the production, release, and destruction of diffusible chemicals; and regulated chemotaxis through a lattice environment facilitated by the interactions of proteins and diffusible chemicals. We also test this model by adapting biological situations to this model to evaluate its ability to model genetic networks and genetically regulated chemotaxis. The model will be used to simulate evolution in artificial amoebae to produce behavior seen in biological organisms such as Dictyostelium discoideum.
