Chains of monomers joined by non-biological peptoid bonds follow different rules of self-assembly and form structures not found in chains joined by the peptide bonds used to form proteins.

An engineered protein controls the assembly of C<sub>60</sub> fullerene molecules into an atomically precise lattice that conducts electricity while neither component alone would.

The claim that the recently reported actuating nanotransducers (ANTS) produce forces "orders of magnitude larger than any produced previously" is challenged by a nanocrystal carbon nanotube device reported 11 years ago.
