Abstract(s)[Excerpt] Silk-elastin-like proteins (SELPs) are a class of bioinspired, genetically engineered block copolymers, composed of silk and elastin repeating units. As base materials for biomedical purposes, SELP nanofibre mats demonstrate potential to be applied as wound dressing materials [1]. The increasing antimicrobial resistance associated with the excessive and inappropriate use of antibiotics demands the research for new pathogen-free healthcare polymeric materials with enhanced biological performance.
