  abstract =     "Over billions of years, natural selection has
                 continued to select for a framework based on (1)
                 parallelism and (2) cooperation across various levels
                 of organisation within organisms to drive their
                 behaviours and responses. We present a design for a
                 bottom-up, reactive controller where the agent's
                 response emerges from many parallelled, enzymatic
                 interactions (bottom-up) within the
                 biologically-inspired process of signal transduction
                 (reactive). We use enzymes to explore the potential for
                 evolving simulated robot controllers for the
                 central-place foraging problem. The properties of the
                 robot and stimuli present in its environment are
                 encoded in a digital format (molecule) capable of being
                 manipulated and altered through self-contained
                 computational programs (enzymes) executing in parallel
                 inside each controller to produce the robot's foraging
                 behaviour. Evaluation of this design in unbounded
                 worlds reveals evolved strategies employing one or more
                 of the following complex behaviors: (1) swarming, (2)
                 coordinated movement, (3) communication of concepts
                 using a primitive language based on sound and colour,
                 (4) cooperation, and (5) division of labour.",
