Surface nanopatterning with self-assembled molecules has gained in interest over the last years because of its usefullness in nanotechnology. In here, the natural abilities of a protein to self-assemble in a honeycomb structure on a surface was studied. Moreover, we also show that the nanostructure can be specifically functionnalized paving the way for nanoelectronics, biosensing and biocatalysis applications.
