MIMIC of bacterial proteins could find a use in nanoelectronics

Scientists from the Universität für Bodenkultur Wien, Austria, and the NMRC, Ireland, have used the micromoulding in capillaries (MIMIC) technique to create patterns of a bacterial protein. The self-assembling protein, which normally forms cell envelopes, potentially has applications in nanofabrication as it can attach itself to other molecules and nanoparticles.
