abstract

  • Within the burgeoning field of nanotechnology, bionanotechnology is an important area. Bionanotechnology is generally defined as the ability to produce biological devices and materials through molecular manipulation and specific control of the physical, chemical and biological properties of the materials employed. The goals of this increasingly visible discipline focus on the creation of functional systems that could be employed in electronic circuitry and devices, advanced materials, biomedical devices, sensors, and others. Many excellent reviews have been published in recent years on subjects at the interface between biology and nanotechnology, reflecting the increasing interest in its potential for addressing diverse scientific and technological challenges [1]. In the field of sensor research and development, bionanotechnology is poised to make significant contributions, and has the …
