HARDWARE

SOFTWARE

WETWARE

Design Automation

Software tools make synthetic biology more effective by integrating concepts from electronic design automation into the specification, design, and assembly of complex biological systems.

Interdisciplinary Approach

CIDAR is composed of a diverse team of undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and research staff from a range of programming, engineering and scientific backgrounds.

Mixed Purpose Workspaces

With both Computational and Wetlab facilities, CIDAR has workspaces for software development and biological engineering research across multiple  departments at Boston University.

New Electrode Integration method published in Lab-on-a-Chip

PhD students David McIntyre and Ali Lashkaripour have published a novel method for microfluidic electrode integration in Lab-on-a-chip. Using off-the-shelf conductive ink, this technique considerably speeds up the prototyping workfow for microfludic devices, reducing the barrier to designing, building, and testing such devices. Check out the paper here.
