Scientific American`s 60-Second Science: Miriam Agler-Rosenbaum on droplet-based microfluidics
This episode is dedicated to the search for new antibiotics using droplet-based microfluidics with our colleague Miriam Agler-Rosenbaum wrapping it up in 60 seconds.
Miriam Agler-Rosenbaum, member of the Cluster of Excellence - Balance of the Microverse is explaining her research that creates microscopic antibiotic factories in droplets that measure a trillionth of a liter in volume. These "microbial bacterial pool parties" open up a totally new way to cultivate (soil) microorganisms in an artificial environment without their natural competition in the first place, but also enable specific manipulation. The goal is to detect new substances like antibiotics.
The work was published in the journal eLife Lisa Mahler et al
