This book provides the reader with the necessary information to conduct experiments at the frontier of microfluidics and molecular biology, especially in the field of single cell analysis and gives a general overview of microfluidic devices for biology. This fascinating book aims to stress the methods that allow complete analysis of gene expression in single cell as opposed to methods that are more commonly used allowing the analysis of only few genes from single cells. Pioneering the way, the authors understand how critical it is for a physicist to understand the
biological issues and questions related to single cell analysis, as well for biologists to understand what microfluidics is all about. Aimed predominantly at graduate students, this book will also be of significant interest to scientists working in or affiliated with this field.
