In another example, they created an acrylamide gel in which single-stranded DNA forms an integral part of the gel structure. In that case, when Cas12a is activated by the trigger, the entire gel breaks down, enabling the release of larger cargoes such as cells or nanoparticles.
When this network of particles is sheared, the interactions between the particles are broken and the gel structure re-liquefies, which allows it to be ejected through an eye dropper or even to be sprayed onto a surface using an airbrush (see Figure 2).
MIT Research Scientists Romain Dupuis and Rolland Pellenq conclude: Better control of ASR requires knowledge of a gel's molecular structure; a simulation approach at the atomic level is an efficient way of examining gel structure; and, progress in simulation techniques could help characterize gels, advancing the industry's approach to ASR.
This result suggested that the highest [kappa]-CN content would be associated with the smallest micelles, independent of the cause-effect relationship between these variables, and might be beneficial to the gel structure. WALSH et al.

Chin et al [8] reported that a desirable gel structure was obtained by the combination of casein and soy protein in MP gels under the proper salt and pH conditions.
Drying of the gels could be performed by using a suitable drying techniques such as (1) ambient air drying, which often does not preserve the gel structure leading to xerogels [19, 20]; (2) freeze drying technique consists in lowering the temperature of the gel below the crystallization temperature of the solvent, whereby the solvent is removed as a vapor by reducing the pressure and the end product of this process is called a cryogel [20, 21]; (3) drying with supercritical fluids, usually supercritical carbon dioxide (scC[O.sub.2]).
Processing the bio-ink and making it stick to itself and hold the desired printed gel structure have been proving particularly difficult especially in inkjet printing.
The "active" filler has a strong interaction with the polymer matrix and therefore can strengthen the resulting gel structure [3].

In particular, it refers to two specific structures, that is, the capillary structure and the C-S-H gel structure. The capillary structure of large pore range consists of three phases, that is, the (capillary) pore phase, the solid phase (anhydrous cement, calcium hydroxide crystal, AFt, and gypsum), and the C-S-H gel phase.
