  • ASRC Nanoscience researchers discover new peptide gels

    December 8, 2014 | Nanoscience Initiative

    Peptides are the building blocks of living systems and they have tremendous potential as building blocks for new materials.  The function of peptides is dictated by a chemical alphabet of 20 letters in specific sequence.  The number of possible sequences is huge, so it is not possible to test them all, which has limited the […]
