ARL researchers featured on cover of prestigious journal for first-ever peptide biomaterial discovery
September 17, 2013
A novel biomaterial discovery methodology for the design of biomolecules that bind to metal surfaces is demonstrated. By combining laboratory experimentation with computational methods, ARL scientists determined that the helical structure of the peptides allows for preferential alignment of groups that coordinate with the surface of a bulk aluminum alloy.
