Keywords: Biomaterials, characterization, mechanical properties, modeling and simulation, synthesis and processing
Scope: Structural proteins such as collagen, silk, or keratin exhibit very interesting mechanical properties and are studied for applications in biomedicine and as sustainable engineering materials. We invite contributions regarding characterization of natural protein materials, synthesis efforts including synthetic biology approaches, and computer simulations or modeling of such materials across the relevant length scales.
