Issue 4 just published including hot articles on self-propelling droplets, cell-resolution vertebrate screening & quick genotyping

Issue 4 is now available online and on the outside front cover we have a hot article from on an automated cellular-resolution vertebrate screening platform from Mehmet Fatih Yanik and an equally exciting image to accompany it!
