January 2018: Video protocol in press at JoVE

We have produced a video in collaboration with Rich Losick of Harvard University to illustrate the microfluidic platform upon which much of our B. subtilis research is based. The Journal of Visualized Experiments was created to provide peer-reviewed protocols in concert with professionally produced videos that illustrate complex scientific methods across a number of disciplines.

August 2017: New research published in PLoS Genetics!

We are pleased to announce new research that was recently published by Dr. Cabeen in the open-access journal PLoS Genetics. This publication forms the basis for future work using microfluidic technology to observe the stress responses of Bacillus subtilis cells when subjected to different stress conditions.
