    About This Project

    As physical forces are further implicated as regulators of developmental processes in plants there is more incentive to understand them. Yet while the significance of this area of plant biology becomes more apparent, so too does the lack of research tools available in the field. We propose the emerging field of droplet microfluidics as a platform for the fabrication of hydrogel cellular microenvironments whose mechanical properties can be precisely controlled.
