'Growing' microchips from proteins

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The microtubule is a polarized, dynamic biopolymer with each end exhibiting unique and specific biochemical moieties. Based on these properties, a fabrication process is being developed in which interconnects between multiple, varied devices and interfaces are built, in situ, through directed and controlled polymerization of microtubules. This paper presents a new science of nanomaterials, in which the structure/processing/properties/utilization paradigm is based on the specificity of biomolecular precursors and biopolymer dynamics.
