Abstract: Continuity plays a crucial role in any discussion on evolution. A nearness relation in the phenotype space allows to distinguish continuous evolution from discontinuous one. The genotype-phenotype map plays a crucial role in evolutionary biology. In this paper we have investigated continuity in evolution of amino acids. Nearness relations 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 neighbourhood structures of amino acids.
