Abstract. Microfluidic devices are emerging as an attractive technol-
ogy for automatically orchestrating the reactions needed in a biological
computer. Thousands of microfluidic primitives have already been inte-
grated on a single chip, and recent trends indicate that the hardware
complexity is increasing at rates comparable to Moore's Law. As in the
case of silicon, it will be critical to develop abstraction layers--such as
programming languages and Instruction Set Architectures (ISAs)--that
