Enzymatic dip-pen nanolithography

Enzymes are manifold and so are their functionalities. Several enzymes can be bought off the shelf. A group of researchers at Duke University have tapped into their potential for biochemical manipulations to pattern surfaces1. With a modification of dip-pen nanolithography, they laid a pattern of DNAase I on a substrate covered with an oligonucleotide-terminated self-assembled monolayer.
