Biological definition (a)  the sub-system should perform a biologically relevant function in some mode of the total system, e.g. regulate the ATP concentration, entry of mitosis or apoptosis (b)  the sub-system should only weakly interact with its environment, that is, respond to few external inputs, produce few outputs and otherwise be essentially unaffected by changes in the environment.
