Abstract: Continuity plays a crucial role in any discussion on evolution. The genotype-phenotype map focus crucial role in evolutionary biology. A nearness relation in the phenotype space allows distinguishing continuous evolution from discontinuous one. In this paper we have investigated continuity in evolution of amino acids. Uniform structures in the space of amino acids as well as in the set of codons are introduced. Here any codon is a genotype and the corresponding amino acid is the phenotype. We examined the continuity of the genotype-phenotype map with respect different uniform structures of codons.
Keywords: Amino acids, Continuity, Genotype space, Phenotype space, Uniformity.
