A central question facing the bottom-up approach for material design is how to faithfully transfer the function at the molecular level to the material properties at the macroscopic level. In the past years, there has been a growing trend of designing materials with dynamically tunable properties, which necessitate a new level of control over macromolecular system design and engineering. Although natural evolution has led to the creation of a vast number of protein molecules with extraordinary structural and functional diversity, such an ecological diversity has yet to be fully utilized to create functional materials with dynamic properties. Taking advantage of some emerging synthetic biology tools and principles, we focus on the strategies that enable the assembly of engineered protein molecules into functional macroscopic materials for a variety of applications ranging from regenerative medicine to environmental remediation.
