Helical morphologies were generated from aspartic acid (Asp) crystals in agar gel matrix. The morphogenesis stereospecifically proceeded in the helical crystal growth: D- and L-Asp provided left- and right-handed structures, respectively. The backbone of the helical morphology was twisted twins of tilted unit crystals, as was the case with inorganic helical crystals. The molecular recognition between the Asp crystals and agar matrix molecules resulted in the stereospecific morphogenesis. The chirality in Asp and agar molecules, the enantiomorph of unit crystals, and the resultant macroscopic helix were exquisitely associated with each other.
