Micropatterning methods are rapidly becoming standard approaches for investigating cellular behaviors such as growth and migration. Adhesive Micropatterns for Cells: A Microcontact Printing Protocol from Matthieu Piel and colleagues at the Institut Curie offers a simple, fast, and efficient method for generating micropatterns for cellular studies. Employing an elastomeric stamp to print proteins on the substrate of choice, this technique does not require much of the expensive equipment and technical expertise needed for most micropatterning methods, making it easier to implement in biology laboratories. The authors have provided a movie that illustrates the technique step-by-step as part of the protocol. The article is a featured protocol for July, and like all our featured articles, it is freely available to subscribers and non-subscribers alike.
