This book addresses in an integrated manner all the critical aspects for building the next generation of biorecognition platforms - from biomolecular recognition to surface fabrication. The most recent strategies reported to create surface nano and micropatterns are thoroughly analyzed. This book contains descriptions of the types of molecules immobilized at surfaces that can be used for specific biorecognition, how to immobilize them, and how to control their arrangement and functionality at the surface. Small molecules, peptides, proteins and oligonucleotides are at the core of the biorecognition processes and will constitute a special part of this book. The authors include detailed information on biological processes, biomolecular screening, biosensing, diagnostic and detection devices, tissue engineering, development of biocompatible materials and biomedical devices.
Dr. Juan Rodríguez-Hernández is tenured scientist at the Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnologia de Polimeros (Madrid-Spain) since 2008. He obtained his PhD from the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany in 2003. He then joined the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques in Bordeaux France as post-doc and later a...
