Abstract

Functional three-dimensional constructs incorporating biological materials produced by additive manufacturing techniques are provided. The biological material can be a protein that is incorporated into the three-dimensional construct via a light-inducible functional group and 0 retains its native function. In one embodiment, the biological material is bacteriorhodopsin and the construct incorporates a silver inorganic catalyst to produce hydrogen upon exposure to light.
