About biointerface.org Project

biointerface.org is an interdisciplinary educational resource focused on biointerface science: the biology, chemistry, and physics of biomolecules interacting with surfaces.

The project started off-line as a collection of research notes, books, review papers, and other materials about biointerfaces and related fields in biology, nanoscience, and surface analysis. A growing collection of resources is now presented online, to provide a basic introduction to biointerface science. This website is particularly targeted at students and postdocs who have a background in physical sciences and who are interested in biointerfaces, biomaterials, biomimetics, nanobiotechnology, or bionanotechnology.
