Hybrid transistors with silk protein

231012 transistor sensor lgA research team at Tufts University’s Silklab have created transistors in which the insulating material is replaced with biological silk.

The researchers have been able to make these fundamental electronic components part biological and able to respond directly to the environment and change like living tissue.
