Wired.com reported on an application of a genetic algorithm that generates iris images capable of fooling eye scanners. From the article:

Their research involved taking iris codes that had been created from real eye scans as well as synthetic iris images created wholly by computers and modifying the latter until the synthetic images matched real iris images. The researchers used a genetic algorithm to achieve their results.
