Cell fate decisions play a major role in the building of tissues and organisms. The process depends on the interaction between signalling pathways and transcription factors. I shall discuss the possibility that this interaction results in a calculation and will discuss what is being calculated and the structure of the machine that does the calculation. While much of the inspiration for this perspective is derived from genetic studies in Drosophila, our current studies make use of mouse embryonic stem cells to probe into the hypothesis and its elements.
