The usefulness of genetic algorithms in the control and manipulation, of the quantum states of Bose-Einstein condensates was addressed. This was illustrated in two examples, the coherent population transfer between momentum states in a large condensate where the mean-field effects are important, and the creation of coherent superpositions of states of prescribed population and relative phase. It was found that time-dependent Bragg scattering combined with the powerful optimization capabilities of genetic algorithms, provides a different tool for quantum-state design and coherent control in linear and nonlinear atom optics.
