Living on the Edge: Re-shaping the Interface of Synthetic Biology and Nanotechnology
Keywords:Bioengineering, Nanotechnology, Protein engineering, Single-walled carbon nanotube (swcnt), Synthetic biology
AbstractA new team of researchers at EPFL is taking an 'anti-disciplinary' approach to creating optical devices. These devices take advantage of the synergy in tuning both nano- and bio-material properties, coupling the advantages of two growing, albeit traditionally distinct, fields. With applications spanning from biosensing and microarray assays to living photovoltaics, the Laboratory of NanoBiotechnology (LNB) is uncovering an unexplored space for the next generation of chemical analytics and light-harvesting technologies.
