Today, when a company designs, develops and manufactures goods or services, it must not only target a high level of quality for the products to satisfy customers, but also comply with many standards and regulations. This is particularly true with transportation systems where we can name few famous standards and guidelines: the ISO 26262  addresses the software functional safety in automotive, the ARP4754  provides guidelines for the development of civil aircrafts, and the DO-178C addresses software safety  in aeronautics. Furthermore, these safety guidelines impose to the company to be at the state of the art for processes and methods, when designing and developing a new vehicle.In the context of automotive systems’ development, our research aims to strengthen and unify quality definition, assessment, control, or prediction activities for automotive embedded software. Thus, to resolve this problematic, first we have to explore quality concept, qualimetry -the science of quality quantification -, and the state of the art about quality modeling for embedded software. The result is not only to popularize and synthetize the knowledge behind these complex concepts but also, to confirm the choice of qualimetry as the right approach to solve our problematic, for which no proper solution exists yet.We then continue our study considering biology as key factor in our research. Therefore, we create a classified collection of clades of more than 450 quality models for software. We select the most appropriate quality model from this pool of quality models, and after introducing the concept of polymorphism in quality modeling, we demonstrate how to adapt and operationalize this model to automotive embedded software. This last achievement consequently replies to our original problematic.As a further conclusion of our research, we finally investigate whether a unique quality model for software product, as Zouheyr Tamrabet et al.  aim to propose, is more appropriate than a meta-model as quality model aggregator for software product, giving a first glimpse of the model result whose qualifier is the genome of software quality model. “ISO 26262-6:2011 - Road vehicles - Functional safety - Part 6: Product development at the software level,” International Organization for Standardization, 2011. “ARP4754A - Guidelines for Development of Civil Aircraft and Systems,” SAE International, Dec. 2010, [Online].
