The micro-environment is the place where the development of the biological object takes place. It is composed of several elements : Spatial configuration, chemical solution, biological molecules, external stimulations (electric/magnetic fields, mecanical forces, light, etc...), biological interactions, etc... These elements affect the development of the biological object. In the domain of 3D bio-printing, one of the main goal is to provide a tissue with a 3D spatial configuration built from relevant material to induce the growth of specified cell lines.
