"The development of an organism may ... be considered as the execution of a 'developmental program' present in the fertilized egg. The cellularity of higher organisms and their common DNA components force us to consider developing organisms as dynamic collections of appropriately programmed finite automata. A central task of developmental biology is to discover the underlying algorithm from the course of development."
