Cell-like liposomes integrated with microfluidic technology for synthetic biology

Microfluidic devices have substantially advanced the field of synthetic biology with the generation of model cells, thus achieving (1) the efficient encapsulation of cytosolic materials that enabled cell-free protein expression, (2) the incorporation of membrane proteins that allowed the regulation of membrane permeability, (3) the programmable control of the model-cell size, and (4) the high throughput generation of the model cells. In this chapter, we introduce the cutting edge of the microfluidic technologies customized for the production of cell-like liposomes.
