"So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." - Steve Jobs

Proteins are remarkable machines in our body and are responsible for many essential processes. Furthermore, they have unique natural properties that no other macromolecules in nature have. These nanomachines are naturally biocompatible, chemically and biologically diverse, and can respond to different triggers.
