Biomolecular Assembly in Nanoscale

Biomolecular assembly plays a key role in nearly all life processes, providing hierarchical supramolecular struc-ture, molecular recognition, and communication within cells. Since these assembly processes rely on precise interactions between the functional groups of biomole-cules, researchers tried to mimic and engineer biomole-cule assembly with a variety of goals, from modulating cellular functions to the creation of unique nanostruc-ture. Moreover, computational methods have been de-veloped dramatically in parallel with advances in under-standing the structure and properties of naturally occur-ring assemblies. The concise design of the unit struc-ture allows to create an unprecedented supramolecular structure. This thematic series aims to introduce the lat-est research trend of utilizing biomolecular assembly and their representative applications including therapeu-tics, biocatalysts, and functional nanomaterials.
