This paper proposes a new approach for biologically inspired computing on the basis of Gene Regulatory Networks. These networks are models of genes and dynamic interactions that take place between them. The differential equation representations of such networks resemble neural networks as well as idiotypic networks in immune system. Although several potential applications have been outlined, an example, the problem of placing sensors optimally in a distributed environment is considered in
