In this paper, we present an original cellular system named Phuon. The main motivation behind this project is to go beyond classical cellular systems, such as cellular automata (CA). CA often lack adaptability and turn out to be very brittle in uncertain environment. The idea here is to add ontogeny to cellularity, growth and development being means of adaptation and thus robustness. However, we do not wish to develop yet another cellular system for the sake of it. What we are seeking in the long term is a developmental system for problem solving. This global aim enticed us into finding a way to map a desired global behavior of the system to the local behavior of a cell. Quite naturally a peculiar brand of genetic programming was used for that purpose. The results are still preliminary but in our view they already validate some of the hypotheses behind this work.
