<p>As part of nature's solution for regulating biological environments, ion channels are particularly interesting to device engineers seeking to understand how nanoscale molecular systems realize device-like functions, such as biosensing of organic analytes. By attaching molecular adaptors inside genetically engineered ion channels, it's possible to further enhance this biosensor functionality.</p>
