Quartz-binding peptides (QBPs) are used as both ink and linker for microcontact printing and self-assembly, for the co-immobilization of streptavidin-coated quantum dots and fluorescein. Directed assembly of the quantum dots is carried out following microcontact printing of biotinylated QBP1 on a quartz surface. The remaining untouched regions are occupied by the mediated-assembly of fluorescein linked with QBP1.
