Top downloads for February ’09

It is always interesting to see how papers we publish are received by the community and one useful metric is the number of times a paper is viewed or downloaded. Authors also like to see this information when their paper was one of the most heavily viewed papers.

Each month we will report the original research papers we published that received the most unique views (HTML) and downloads (PDF) the previous month. This will be broken down between papers published in that month’s issue and papers published in prior months. Now for the most popular downloads for the month of February.

1. Microfluidic control of cell pairing and fusion
