Bacteriophages and nanostructured materials.

  • Published 2012 in Advances in applied microbiology


Although people taking different approaches in the field of nanotechnology may target different size ranges, broadly, nanotechnology has the goal of creating structures in the 1-100 nm size range. This is the same size range that bacteriophages synthesize capsids. Bacteriophages also have the desirable property of self-fabrication or self-assembly--much of… (More)
