High-throughput droplet generation using on-chip microfluidics allows for screening genetic expression libraries in monodisperse compartments in which a genotype to phenotype linkage is maintained.Synthetic compartments are compatible with in vitro expression of genes, making them ideal containers for laboratory evolution.Fluorescence-independent screening methods increase the scope of microfluidics-assisted in vitro compartmentalization (μΙVC).μΙVC is progressing rapidly from pilot stage to industrial applications.
