$\mu$-NET: A Network for Molecular Biology Applications in Microfluidic Chips

  title={\$\mu\$-NET: A Network for Molecular Biology Applications in Microfluidic Chips},
  author={Lidia Donvito and Laura Galluccio and Alfio Lombardo and Giacomo Morabito},
  journal={IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking},
This paper introduces μ-NET, a microfluidic LAN that supports the exchange of both digital information and biochemical information carried by droplets moving across molecular processors in a microfluidic chip. The μ-NET can be used to support molecular biology applications like DNA, RNA, and protein biosynthesis. The μ-NET is the first realization of a microfluidic networking paradigm that controls movements of droplets in microfluidic chips by exploiting hydrodynamic phenomena only and builds… CONTINUE READING
