A TISSUE-ENGINEERED JELLYFISH WITH BIOMIMETIC PROPULSION PDF
The constructs, termed ‘medusoids’, were designed with computer simulations and experiments to match key determinants of jellyfish propulsion and feeding. Enter the era of synthetic physiology! Why not build a jellyfish from neonatal rat heart cells and some plastic? This is exactly what was accomplished in this study. jellyfish. This engineered jellyfish displays behavior such as propulsion and swimming when A tissue engineered jellyfish with biomimetic propulsion .
