Cell On a Chip Reveals Protein Behavior: In the Future, Artifical Cells May Produce Complex Protein Structures On Demand
Mar. 18, 2013 — For years, scientists around the world have dreamed of building a complete, functional, artificial cell. Though this vision is still a distant blur on the horizon, many are making progress on various fronts. Prof. Roy Bar-Ziv and his research team in the Weizmann Institute's Materials and Interfaces Department recently took a significant step in this direction when they created a two-dimensional, cell-like system on a glass chip.
