BioScript: Safe programming on Laboratories-on-a-Chip awarded distinguished paper award!


Ph.D. students Jason Ott and Tyson Loveless, working with Chris Curtis, Dr. Mohsen Lesani, and Dr. Philip Brisk have developed a new programming language aimed at making the lives of chemists and biologists safer and easier. BioScript is able to provide strong safety guarantees to ensure no scientist can unknowingly hurt themselves or damage equipment. BioScript can also automate many laboratory experiments allowing scientists to focus on more interesting problems. BioScript, is being present at the Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications (OOPSLA) conference in which it has been awarded a distinguished paper award.
