Synthetic genetic circuits are artificial networks of transcriptional control elements in-
serted into living cells in order to `program' cellular behavior. We can extend this appli-
cation to programming population behavior by incorporating cell-cell communications
capabilities. By designing and building such networks, cellular circuit engineers expect to
gain insight into how natural genetic networks function with remarkable robustness, sta-
bility, and adaptability to changing environments. Programmed cells also have promising
