Artificial Signalling Networks (ASNs) are computational models inspired by cellular signalling processes that interpret environmental information. This paper introduces an ASN-based approach to controlling chaotic dynamics in discrete dynamical systems, which are representative of complex behaviours which occur in the real world. Considering the main biological interpretations of signalling pathways, two ASN models are developed. They highlight how pathways' complex behavioural dynamics can be captured and represented within evolutionary algorithms. In addition, the regulatory capacity of the major regulatory functions within living organisms is also explored. The results highlight the importance of the representation to model signalling pathway behaviours and reveal that the inclusion of crosstalk positively affects the performance of the model.
