BioCoder is a domain-specific language by which chemists and biologists can express experimental protocols in a manner that is unambiguous and clearly repeatable. This paper presents a software toolchain that converts a protocol specified in a restricted subset of BioCoder to a technology-specific description of the protocol, targeting flow-based microfluidic large-scale integration (mLSI) chips. The technology-specific description can then be used to either: (1) execute the protocol on a capable chip; or (2) to derive the architecture of a new mLSI chip that can execute the protocol. © 2013 IEEE.
