Preliminary project description

Self-assembly is one of the important properties of biological systems. Application of this principle along with the ability to genetically encode the modular building blocks could revolutionize manufacturing, particularly since the self-assembled structures in nature span from the nano- to the macroscopic scale.

We plan to investigate the feasibility and potentials of BioBricks principle to prepare structural elements that will self-assemble into the defined structures that could be used for different applications, from materials sciences to health.
