Kaplan Sequence–Structure–Property Relationships of Recombinant Spider Silk Proteins: Integration of Biopolymer Design, Processing, and Modeling Advanced Functional Materials 23
Understanding sequence–structure–property relationships provides the opportunity to generate materials with pre-determined properties. A trinity approach combining controlled synthesis (genetically programmed), tailorable processing (via microfluidic focusing and film assembly), and molecular modeling with spider silk-like designs as target materials is reported. This iterative approach offers a robust discovery path in optimizing material designs with predictable functional outcomes.
