first experimental observation of traveling concentration waves and spirals in a chemical reaction network built from the bottom up

We have reported the first experimental observation of traveling concentration waves and spirals in a chemical reaction network built from the bottom up. The mechanism of the network is a DNA oscillator of the predator–prey type. The molecular encoding of the nonequilibrium behavior relies on small DNA oligonucleotides that enforce the network connectivity and three purified enzymes that control the reactivity.

Reprogrammable microfluidic chips

A microfluidic chip with channels that can be programmed then reset and reconfigured has been developed by scientists from CEA-LETI and LIMMS. The chip developed by PhD student Raphaёl Renaudot from CEA-Leti and LIMMS and coworkers consists of a bottom support, which contains an array of electrodes, and a top plate made of glass, with paraffin wax and distilled water sandwiched in between. At 45 °C, the paraffin wax is liquid. By selectively switching on particular electrodes, ...
