The age of the universe is estimated to be around 13.8 billion yeas. During this long stretch of time, nature has been a great laboratory where myriads of objects have been formed or synthesized. Nowhere is this more evident than in biological systems, which provides a rich array of structures, from the simplest small RNA molecule to functional organelles such as ribosomes or flagellar nanomotors to viruses and complete cells.
Join us at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University May 20 -22, to hear from leading scientist on the cutting edge of biologically enabled self-assembly research and its application for nanotechnology, sustainable energy, medical care, and more.
Co-sponsored by the College of Science and Technology, Sustainability Institute, Division of Research and UC Davis – Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter.
