25_33i/2013Biomaterials: Genetically Engineered Peptides for Inorganics: Study of an Unconstrained Bacterial Display Technology and Bulk Aluminum Alloy (Adv. Mater. 33/2013)

New Capabilities in Genetically Engineered Peptides for Inorganics: A novel biomaterial discovery methodology utilizing an unconstrained bacterial display library is demonstrated by Dimitra Stratis-Cullum and co-workers on page 4585. Among the high affinity metal-oxide binding peptides discovered, the cover art depicts the most successful peptide, which is characterized by a highly helical structure and allows for preferential alignment of coordinating groups with the surface of an aluminum alloy. Artistic rendition created by Mr. Eric Proctor.
