Bionanotechnology, the emerging field of using biomolecular and biotechnological tools for nanostructure or nanotechnology development, provides exceptional opportunity in the design of new materials. Self-assembly of molecules is an attractive materials construction strategy due to its simplicity in application. By considering peptidic or other bio-polymer molecules in the bottom-up materials self-assembly design process, one can take advantage of inherently biomolecular attributes; intramolecular folding events, secondary structure, and electrostatic interactions; in addition to more traditional self-assembling molecular attributes such as amphiphilicty, to define hierarchical material structure and consequent properties.

Your submissions are invited in all areas of bionanotechnology including strategies for creating novel nanostructured materials for biotechnology applications and understanding their fundamental properties.
