Abstract

Bio-HCI framework focuses on three major components:  biological materials, digital platforms, and interaction with the user. In this context, “biological materials” is meant to broadly cover biological matter (DNA, RNA, enzyme), biological information (gene, epigenetic), biological process (mutation, reproduction, self-assembling), and biological form. These biological materials serve as the design elements for designers to use in the same way as digital materials. The platform focuses on methods of connecting biological materials to a user, or a digital platform that connects to users.
