Priming viruses for nanochemistry

Abstract:
A method for tailoring virus particles as materials-specific scaffolds allows the synthesis of nanowires with precisely defined dimensions. Angela Belcher, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, and co-workers have used rod-shaped viruses as templates for making crystalline wires from a variety of metals and semiconductors. They are able to modify the viral protein coats so as to selectively nucleate different materials and even to control their crystallographic orientation.
