In this project we endeavoured to expand the realm of multidimensional protein assembly by generating new proteins that assemble into 2D and 3D shapes of controllable size and symmetry, for template-based construction of advanced biomaterials. We successfully created a standardized biomolecular construction kit comprised of a thermostable filamentous protein called gamma-prefoldin and complementary protein parts that can be assembled into diverse structures of controllable size and shape.
