The promise of designing a platform consisting of miniaturized biomimetic nanosensor for the sensitive, selective, and labelfree
detection of analytes can stimulate revolutionary scientific and technological opportunities in medical, environmental,
defense and aerospace applications. Graphene is a single-atom-thick, two-dimensional carbon based material with remarkable
electronic and sensing properties. Biological smart materials with integrated nano-transducer can provide a general platform for
highly specific nanosensors. Here, I will describe the selection of specific biomimetic materials as bioreceptors in sensors, the
fabrication of graphene-based electrodes in a variety of configurations, and the electrical characterization of the biofunctionalized
graphene-electrodes as specific nanosensors for detection of target analytes.
