Two years ago, F. Akif Tezcan of the University of California, San Diego, and coworkers showed that an electron-transfer protein could self-assemble via zinc ion coordination into one- and two-dimensional arrays (C&EN, March 12, 2012, page 9). At the time, nanotechnologist Chengde Mao of Purdue University commented that applications . . .
