Latest QBiC newsletter is out

Cover page of QBiTs

The eighth issue of QBiTs, the quarterly newsletter of the RIKEN Quantitative Biology Center was released in late July, and is available for downloading.

In addition to an interview with a space scientist, the issue features an introduction to ultra-thin "lab-on-chip" devices being developed at QBiC, a system for making tissues transparent to allow them to be to imaged more easily, experimental work to determine how a cell determines what is really important among all the environmental "noise" that surrounds it, and how wine is making contributions to the work of a QBiC lab!

QBiC is RIKEN's center dedicated to the study of the control principles that regulate complex biological systems. Download the newsletter from the QBiC website to find out more.
