Self-Assembly of Functional Nanosurfaces and Complex Nanostructures with Genetically Modified Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Horelik, Nicholas
2009

In this project I explored two different methods for utilizing genetically modified tobacco mosaic viruses (TMVs) to robustly create tunable and functional nano-scale surfaces and structures. As highly stable nano-scale rods, TMVs provide for excellent nanotemplates that are programmable via nucleic acid hybridization and functionalizable with genetically inserted thiol groups in cysteine residues... read more
