    研究成果名稱(英):Computational design of co-assembling protein–DNA nanowires
    簡要記述(中):因為生物納米技術的多功能性和生物相容性,研發生物分子自組裝納米材料一直是大家非常感興趣的課題。在過去十年中,這方面的設計一直 局限在單組成的納米結構。為了開發新的自組裝納米材料, 我們使用計算設計結構以及使用光學顯微鏡驗證新的蛋白質- 脫氧核糖核酸共同組裝納米材料。這材料使用蛋白質形成二聚體,以結合到DNA螺旋 , 並依次建立DNA-蛋白質納米線 ,為新的納米材料設計啟發先河。
    簡要記述(英):Biomolecular self-assemblies are of great interest to nanotechnologists because of their functional versatility and biocompatibility. Over the past decade, the design has been focused on single-component nanostructures. Here, for the development of new classes of protein–DNA hybrid materials, we use computational protein design and microscopy to create a protein–DNA co-assembling nanomaterial. The results lay a foundation for the new design of self-assembling bio-nanomaterials.

    研究成果名稱(英):Self-repairing symmetry in jellyfish through mechanically driven reorganization
    簡要記述(中):當動物受傷會怎麼自我修復,一直是再生醫學一個熱門課題。藉由研究水母,我們發現一個以前未知的自我修復策略。當受傷時,水母通過重組現有零件,而非再生,來重建至關重要的體態勻稱。這項對再生醫學有影響的工作在 Washington post ( ) 和 New York Times ( 都有報導。
    簡要記述(英):What happens when an animal is injured and loses important structures? This is an important issue in regenerative medicine. Here, we report a previously unidentified strategy of self-repair, where moon jellyfish respond to injuries by reorganizing existing parts, and rebuilding essential body symmetry, without regenerating what is lost. This work is broadcasted on Washington post ( ) and New York Times ( The results might provide a new strategy for the engineering of regenerative medicine.
