Research Highlights

E. coli growing in microfluidic traps can exhibit "streaming", where smaller cells are swept out of the trap past stationary larger cells. BioCircuits researchers have developed a mathematical model that explains the origins and ramifications of this behavior.

4TH ANNUAL WINTER Q-BIO MEETING - February 14-18, 2016

The BioCircuits Institute is one of the main sponsors of the annual Winter q-bio Meetings on the Hawaiian Islands. These meetings bring together scientists and engineers who are interested in all areas of q-bio. Each year, the meetings rotate on the Hawaiian Islands with a different thematic focus within q-bio. The 1st Winter q-bio Meeting was held February 18-21, 2013 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. The second meeting was held on the Big Island of Hawaii, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, February 17-20, 2014. The 3rd Annual Winter q-bio Meeting was hosted at the Westin Maui on February 17-20, 2015. The 4th Annual Winter q-bio Meeting will be back in Honolulu, Oahu, at the Sheraton Waikiki, February 14-18, 2016.
