Phage Nanobiotechnology Chapter 5

Engineering hybrid nanostructures with phage particles

Affilation: Argonne National Laboratory, United States

Pages: 453 - 456

Keywords: phage, hybrid nanostructures, assembly, combinatorial libraries

Assembling complex structures comprising multiple, inorganic functional elements represents a significant engineering challenge. We have constructed hybrid nanostructures based on T7 and M13 phage and incorporating a variety of metals and metal oxides. Synthesis of these structures demonstrates the level of control that is possible with this approach, but, as of yet, only hints at the level of complexity that will soon be possible.
