Proteins are appealing materials because they not only have some functions at the molecular level, but they are also able to generate a variety of functions depending on how they are combined. Recently, in reference to cells (melanophore) pertaining to ichthyic metachrosis, we have successfully developed a color-changing system by building protein molecules.
With a focus on protein-powered displays, this seminar introduces micromachines driven by motor proteins that we formed to date.
