The progress in molecular biology and microbiology over the past 50 years has provided a solid basis for such development.Well characterized natural biomolecules as well as tailored recombinant proteins and tailored microorganisms obtained by genetic engineering provide a large toolbox for the implementation ofbiological structures in a technical environment. Biologically inspired materials engineering enables, for example, the preparation of living tissue for regenerative bone therapy and the biologicallycontrolled mineralization of precious metal catalysts via immobilized microorganisms.Written by authors from different fields to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the topic, thisbook guides the reader through novel nano-materials processing inspired by nature. The presentationis structured around general principles in seven chapters, each composed of three parts:(1) biological case studies providing the motivation, (2) elucidation of the particular principle, (3) applications related to materials processing.
