Project Description:
This project aims to create a lab-on-a-chip system for DNA manipulation using open source software and hardware. The system, called ”Purple Drop,” will sequence the movement, heating, and cooling of droplets containing DNA for precise control and information processing. The project will impact the field of computing and contribute to communities in biomolecular engineering, automation, computer arithmetic, and hardware integration. Students in computer science, engineering, chemistry, biology, or bioengineering majors are encouraged to apply.
