Biomimetics: A molecular perspective

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The interface between biological and non-biological worlds becomes increasingly blurred due to significant advances in our understanding of biological phenomena and the development of sophisticated means to manipulate molecular systems for varied applications. This book methodically describes artificial and synthetic assemblies mimicking biological and living systems - from biomaterials to drug discovery to microelectronics and computer sciences. • New: biological robotics, plastic-digesting bacteria and enzymes, biomimetic systems for green energy, gene manipulations, ethics in biomimetic R&D (GM foods and GM organisms) • Updates: cell seeding, artificial hearts, 3D printing, drug development.
