Variations include the following: for procreation only simulate competition to become a father (equal chance for each candidate to become a mother) rather than for both parents; for survival allow candidates to be selected more than once, replace population with only new candidates, or allow elitism (best candidate always survives); allow (or not) all newly generated candidates at least one free pass into the next population; and offspring are either created by crossover or mutation rather than crossover and mutation.

For a nanocluster composed of three atoms, there are three variables: the interatomic distances between the first atom and the other two, r12 and r13, as well as the angle, θ23, made by these lengths or the distance between the latter two atoms, r23. 0 Å, where the maximum interatomic distance has been doubled in order to allow for a linear arrangement, for example, θ23=0° or 180°. For nanoclusters composed of identical atoms, the search can be restricted further; for example, if atoms 2 and 3 are identical, then switching atoms 2 and 3 would yield the same configuration; many of such duplicates can be avoided by applying the constraint r12 ≤ r13.

For nanoclusters, the features are structural (atomic coordinates). Crossover typically generates two new candidates (offspring) by mixing atomic coordinates of two candidate structures taken from the current population. Traditionally, atomic coordinates are converted to binary numbers (this requires a discrete space, atoms either restricted to sites of a grid or displaced to the nearest grid point after relaxation) that are concatenated to form a sequence of 0s and 1s, the analogous DNA of an atomic configuration [86,87].
