All known life forms process information on a bio-molecular level, which is known to be robust, self-organizing, adaptive, decentralized, asynchronous, fault tolerant, and evolvable. In order to exploit these properties it has been suggested to use artificial chemical systems like P-systems or artificial hormone systems. However, finding the right chemical program appears to be difficult, because computation emerges out of an interplay of many decentralized relatively simple components called molecules.
