Abstract

original image

Hydrodynamic shaping is used as a versatile method for the in situ encapsulation of bacteria in microfibers. On page 698 André A. Adams and co-workers report the production of biohybrid microfibers by hydrodynamic shaping of a cell-containing pre-gel and inert sheath fluid, subsequently polymerized via photoinitiation.
