  • Application of simple design rules enables controlled assembly of discrete peptide nanostructures. [Also see Report by Fletcher et al.] The complex properties of systems as diverse as ant colonies and stock markets emerge from the interplay of many components interacting through a small number of simple rules (1). Establishing the interaction rules not only helps to understand the emergence of the larger system; exploitation of the rules can provide rational control over the system itself. On… CONTINUE READING
