The peptides containing β-and γ-amino acids as building blocks display well-defined secondary
structures with unique morphologies. The ability of such peptides to self-assemble into complex
structures of controlled geometries has been exploited in biomedical applications. Herein, we have
provided an updated overview about the peptides containing β-and γ-amino acids considering the significance
and advancement in the area of development of peptide-based biomaterials having diverse
Keywords: Hybrid peptide, self-assembly, amino acid, β-peptide, γ-peptide, supramolecular.
