In the past 20 years protein engineering has been used for the production of proteins mostly for biological applications. The incorporation of artificial amino acids and chemical handles into proteins had made possible the design and production of protein-based materials like hybrid inorganic-organic materials, smart/ responsive materials, monodisperse polymers, and nanoscale assemblies. In the current topic, we cover current uses and envision future applications of materials generated using protein engineering and biosynthesis techniques. I would like to acknowledge the U.S. Office of Naval Research for financial support and Dr. Cherise Bernard for her contributions during the early stages of the Research Topic.The tools and resources available to the genetic engineer open new opportunities in genome engineering (Carr and ... Following their theme, most of the articles in the current Research Topic fit in the category of Using Biology as a Material.
