Summary In nature, biological systems and physiological processes have evolved over millions of years to improve their properties and functions. Biomimetics is the study and use of the structure and function of living things to create materials or products by reverse engineering. A major advantage of these systems is that both biochemical and physical parameters can be precisely controlled, therefore enabling the utilization of biomimetic systems as experimental models for guiding the research on the biological mutation and evolution in the organisms. Some bioactive molecules such as peptides, protein
