Krishnendu Chakrabarty, Tsung-Yi Ho, and Robert Wille. Design of Microfluidic Biochips (Dagstuhl Seminar 15352). In Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 5, Issue 8, pp. 34-53, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2016)


Advances in microfluidic technologies have led to the emergence of biochip devices for automating laboratory procedures in biochemistry and molecular biology. Corresponding systems are revolutionizing a diverse range of applications, e.g.~air quality studies, point-of-care clinical diagnostics, drug discovery, and DNA sequencing -- with an increasing market. However, this continued growth depends on advances in chip integration and design-automation tools. Thus, there is a need to deliver the same level of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) support to the biochip designer that the semiconductor industry now takes for granted. The goal of the seminar was to bring together experts in order to present and to develop new ideas and concepts for design automation algorithms and tools for microfluidic biochips. This report documents the program and the outcomes of this endeavor.
