Fitting a whole molecular biology lab on a single chip.

I never understood microfluidic devices fully. They seemed very complex and while in theory their design seemed simple, i could never get any experience in making one by myself as an undergraduate student. And all those benefits i have been hearing about them, being able to detect pieces of DNA, even those that exist in… Continue reading Fitting a whole molecular biology lab on a single chip.

Since Westworld came out I became ”obsessed”, I watched every episode and… Continue reading The problem with Westworld. (Consciousness)
