Over the last decade, concurrent advances in both computer hardware and in experimental techniques have led to the possibility of a truly iterative research process in which both modeling and experiment play a vital role. Here we discuss the development of classical and quantum mechanical computational models of the interaction of genetically engineered peptides with metal and metal oxide surfaces such as gold and alumina. Use of these models in conjunction with experiment imparts a deeper fundamental understanding of the binding process and is essential to design and ultimate control of the living material interface.
