What is a DNA file?

Data file used by GenePool, an artificial life simulation game; contains the DNA for a creature that can be simulated with other creatures in a virtual experiment; sometimes used for competitions to see which player's custom creatures survive better than others when simulated together.

More Information

NOTE: DNA files are also used by Darwin Pond, the predecessor to GenePool. However, Darwin Pond DNA files use a plain text format while GenePool DNA files use binary formatting. The Darwin Pond DNA files contain a fixed list of parameters separated by line breaks, and each file has the same file size.
