Sequence sets structure: Amphiphilic norbornene-based double-comb diblock polymers with peptide and oligo(ethylene oxide) side chains aggregate in water to form unprecedented complex morphologies depending on the amino acid sequence of the peptide. The internal structures of the aggregates observed by cryo electron tomography show densely folded and highly branched wormlike micelles (left) and spherical aggregates with a bicontinuous architecture (right).
