The chemistry of spider toxins and spider silk


Angewandte Chemie 36(4): 314-326
The chemistry of spider toxins and spider silk
Spiders have developed a finely tuned system, based on the use of venom and silk, which has enabled them to compete successfully throughout the course of their evolution.
