Biological organisms have evolved to perform and survive in a world characterized by rapid changes, high uncertainty, infinite richness, and limited availability of information. Gene regulatory networks (GRNs) are models of genes and gene interactions at the expression level. In this paper, inspired by the biological organisms and GRNs models, a distributed multi-robot self-construction method is proposed. By using this method, a multi-robot system can self-construct to different predefined shapes, and self-reorganize to adapt to dynamic environments. Various case studies have been conducted in the simulation, and the simulation results demonstrate the efficiency and convergence of the proposed method.
