A Soft Matter paper has been highlighted on the science news website Science Daily. In the Soft Matter paper (Designing maneuverable micro-swimmers actuated by responsive gel) Alexander Alexeev and co-workers at Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, design a simple maneuverable micro-swimmer that can self-propel and navigate in microfluidic channels. The micro-swimmer is designed using computational modelling.
