Living Materials represent a new approach in materials synthesis that innovatively links the fields of materials science, synthetic biology and biotechnology. Living cells are used as active components to give non-living matter life-like abilities, e.g. B. the ability to reproduce, for self-healing, for adaptation to environmental stimuli or for the production of medicinal substances. The living cells used are bacteria, yeasts or algae, which have often been genetically modified beforehand, while the non-living material components can consist of organic or inorganic polymers as well as minerals or metals. Living Materials are currently still in the basic research stage, but some of their many possible applications have already been implemented for experimental purposes.
