Special issue: Nanobio vs. bionano

As researchers develop capabilities to engineer and manipulate objects and systems at ever-diminishing scales, we are now entering the realm of scientific discoveries at the nano-level. One such invention is pictured on the cover of this Special Issue, edited by François Baneyx (University of Washington, USA) and Je-Kyun Park (KAIST, Korea), showing a single-cell-sized neural electrode with unique gold nanograin structures in the beautiful shape of a sunflower.
