Scientists have created the first programmable tissues from synthetic cells


Researchers created artificial fabrics that can imitate some complex functions and opportunities for living.

The team of scientists from the University of Bristol developed a new technology for assembling millions of sticky synthetic cells into a single structure with customizable properties. Such artificial fabrics can not only interact with each other, but also react not to changes in the external environment.

The developed method allows to form complex protector of any size and shape, maintain strength and stability in water. This allowed the team to create a complex artificial fabric from several types of layers.

Scientists also programmed the protocutors to respond in a certain way to various chemicals. Therefore, during the experiments, they could extract important physical and chemical information from the collective reaction to stimuli.

According to the team, such artificial structures can lay the foundation for the new method of studying the effects of drugs for live tissues. They can also be used as organoids, instilling to organs or create soft robots that receive energy from surrounding chemicals.

Recently, scientists also created the first synthetic cell that grows and
