By considering living systems as information processing systems, we can formulate questions concerning "emergent" systems-level behaviors that include cellular decision making, maintenance of homeostasis and robustness, sensitivity to diverse yet specific types of information in the presence of environmental variability, and coordination of complex macroscopic behavior. I will discuss approaches rooted in algorithmic information theory for relating structure of complex systems to their dynamics.
