Special Symposium

A new promising type of nanomaterials—bacteriophages—emerged recently as a result of evolution of phage display technique.  In opposite to other nanomaterials, the bacteriophages have the unique feature—their structure and function are encrypted in their genomic DNA, which can be intentionally modified or even rewritten using routine genetic engineering techniques. Phage as a new kind of nanomaterials attracts attention of specialists working in boundary, and even very distal areas from genetics and molecular biology, such as pharmaceutical science, material science, microelectronics, biosensors, detection, environmental sciences, etc. Penetration of the phage technology into these new disciplines requires development of new concepts, which will be the focus of the symposium. The symposium will introduce new researchers into this hot new area of phage nanobiotechnology, summarize the existing data on the phage nanomaterials and discuss a prospect of their use in different areas of medicine, science and technology.
