This article presents a novel genetics-based method of analysing and synthesising non-repetitive, patterned acoustic signals in general, and animal vocal communication in particular. Its operation is based on abstracted low-level principles of DNA operation such as transcription, translation, silencing and others. It is hoped that by taking the low-level genetic approach, the capabilities of error-repair, evolution and robustness will be imparted on the system. The method's suitability for analysing and synthesising animal vocal communication is demonstrated by its application to feature-based analysing and synthesising bottlenose dolphins' signature whistles. The novel approach enabled the simulation of signature whistle learning by calves, mutual imitation of signature whistles by dolphins, and the effect of stress on signature whistle parameters.
