Distributed Information Processing in Biological and Computational Systems
By Saket Navlakha, Ziv Bar-Joseph
Communications of the ACM, Vol. 58 No. 1, Pages 94-102

"Biological systems, ranging from the molecular to the cellular to the organism level, are distributed and in most cases operate without central control.
