Researchers develop synthetic prototissue capable of synchronized beating.

In evolutionary biology, protocells are thought to be a stepping-stone to the origin of life, hypothesized as the first cells to transfer genetic information via RNA before the onset of eukaryotic-based DNA replicating cells.  A subsequent goal is to use artificial protocellular units for the bottom-up assembly of prototissues, however, this is still a major challenge for researchers.  Now, a
