The nano-scale spatial organization of metallic and other inorganic materials into 1D objects is a key task in nanotechnology. Nano-scale fibers and tubes are very useful templates for such organization because of their inherent 1D organization. Fibrillar biological molecules and biomolecular assemblies are excellent physical supports on which to organize the inorganic material. Furthermore, these biological assemblies can facilitate high-order organization and specific orientation of inorganic… CONTINUE READING
