MeniFluidics! An easy and powerful technique for patterning microbes
New preprint is now available at arXiv at https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.01595.
This is an exciting interdisciplinary study in collaboration with Vasily Kantsler (Associate Professor, Department of Physics, University of Warwick)!
We present a new easy and robust method of patterning bacterial colonies for biomaterial engineering, synthetic biology, bio-art and basic research into microbial ecology and biophysics. An exciting feature of this method is that it is very easy. It also doesn't need any expensive tool. We hope that this method will unleash the potential of microbial pattern engineering!
