Self-assembly captures media attention

A number of articles on various aspects of self-assembly in chemical and biological systems, and how it might be used to create nanotech devices, have appeared in recent weeks. These include a piece by Philip Ball in the November 2001 issue of Technology Review magazine (Ball also had an article on self-assembly in the 18 October 2001 issue of Nature, but it is not freely available online). Another article ran in the Boston Globe ("No assembly required", by G. Cook, 16 October 2001).
Technology Review also ran an item on its website on self-assembling peptide nanotubes developed by Reza Ghadiri at Scripps, which have potential use as a nano-mechanical antibiotic as reported in July 2001.
