Understanding the self-assembly of nanoscale biological systems through computational modeling
MetadataShow full item record
There has recently been much interest in exploiting or guiding the self-assembling of biological systems for fabricating functional nanoscale devices or components that requiring precise placement and alignment of components. Biological materials such as proteins, DNA, and some plant virus components are especially suited to this task due to their well- understood chemistry, interactions with inorganic components, and size-commensurability with templates designed for practical bionanotechnological applications. Due to experimental limitations on precisely tracking and controlling the assembly ...
