Abstract: We use a genetic algorithm to analyze the data from the third round of the mock LISA data challenge. These data consist of gaussian stationary instrumental noise, a Galactic background and four to six signals from the inspiralling spinning BHs in quasi-circular orbits. We present a particular implementation of the genetic algorithm which uses properties of the signal and the response function. We discuss the results of a preliminary search for a single signal in the instrumental noise.
