We present a method for constructing electronic circuits that uses analogues of biological multi-cellular development, genetic regulatory networks, and transcription and translation processes to build circuits. We show how small circuits may be evolved and how they may be reused to build larger circuits. We also demonstrate that the artificial 'organisms' are capable of regeneration so that circuit functionality can be recovered after damage.
