About this Research Topic
In the past 20 years protein engineering has been used for the production of proteins mostly for biological applications. The incorporation of artificial amino acids and chemical handles into proteins had made possible the design and production of protein-based materials like hybrid inorganic-organic materials, smart/responsive materials, monodisperse polymers, and nanoscale assemblies. In the current topic, we intent to cover current uses and envision future applications of materials generated using protein engineering and biosynthesis techniques.
