Manufacturing Goes Viral

April 18, 2012
This illustration reveals how the arrangement of molecular building blocks results in materials with unique properties, both in nature and in the laboratory. Using a simple, single-step process, engineers and scientists at the University of California at Berkeley recently developed a technique to direct benign, filamentous viruses called M13 phages to serve as structural building blocks for materials with a wide range of properties.
