Motifs, circuits, and networks are core conceptual elements in modern systems and synthetic biology. While there are still undoubtedly more fascinating computations to discover at network level, there are also rich computations that we are only beginning to uncover within the diverse molecules that constitute the networks. Here we explore some work, both new and old, that showcases the incredible computational capacity of seemingly simple molecular mechanisms. A more sophisticated understanding of computations at the molecular level will inspire the development of a more nuanced toolbox for future biological engineering.
