Many materials in nature change colours in response to stimuli, making them attractive for use as sensor platform. However, both natural materials and their synthetic analogues lack selectivity towards specific chemicals, and introducing such selectivity remains a challenge. Here we report the self-assembly of genetically engineered viruses (M13 phage) into(More)
Controlling the assembly of basic structural building blocks in a systematic and orderly fashion is an emerging issue in various areas of science and engineering such as physics, chemistry, material science, biological engineering, and electrical engineering. The self-assembly technique, among many other kinds of ordering techniques, has several unique(More)
Recently, there has been considerable effort to develop suitable scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. Cell adhesion is a prerequisite for cells to survive. In nature, the extracellular matrix (ECM) plays this role. Therefore, an ideal scaffold should be structurally similar to the natural ECM and have biocompatibility and biodegradability. In(More)
Mimicking natural structures has been received considerable attentions, and there have been a few practical advances. Tremendous efforts based on a self-assembly technique have been contributed to the development of the novel photonic structures which are mimicking nature's inventions. We emulate the photonic structures from an origin of colour generation(More)
Discriminating the minute content of chemicals both in precise and concise way is to use core technique for detecting water pollution. Recently a novel virus-based sensor system functionalized by M13 bacte-riophage-based structure got great attention. This system can detect various chemicals in superior sensitivity and selectivity. The filamentous and(More)
A simple and portable colorimetric sensor based on M13 bacteriophage (phage) was devised to identify a class of endocrine disrupting chemicals, including benzene, phthalate, and chlorobenzene derivatives. Arrays of structurally and genetically modified M13 bacteriophage were fabricated so as to produce a biomimetic colorimetric sensor, and color changes in(More)
A bioinspired M-13 bacteriophage-based photonic nose was developed for differential cell recognition. The M-13 bacteriophage-based photonic nose exhibits characteristic color patterns when phage bundle nanostructures, which were genetically modified to selectively capture vapor phase molecules, are structurally deformed. We characterized the color patterns(More)

Here, we describe a highly sensitive and selective surface plasmon resonance sensor system by utilizing self-assembly of genetically engineered M13 bacteriophage. About 2700 copies of genetically expressed peptide copies give superior selectivity and sensitivity to M13 phage-based SPR sensor. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the M13 phage-based SPR sensor(More)
