This book discusses nano- and microfabrication, and how biologists are using such fabricated devices in their research. The goal of the book is to inform materials scientists and engineers about the needs of biologists, and equally, to inform biologists about how nano- and micro-scale fabrication may help to shed light on their own particular research problems. The book also aims to stimulate innovative, productive interactions between materials scientists, engineers, and biologists; and, to explore ways that materials scientists and engineers can exploit biological principles and biological assemblies to produce new and ever-smaller devices. In addition to serving as a resource for scientists in the field, the book is also intended for any biologist or physical scientist who wishes to understand the current state-of-the-art, and what research is currently being done using biological nanofabrication. – CONTENTS.: Introduction: The frontiers and challenges L.
