Abstract:
Nanobiotechnology is the application of nanotechnology to the field of biology and biotechnology. It involves the design, characterization, production, and application of materials, devices, and systems that operate at the Nanoscale for biological and medical purposes.

Nanobiotechnology: How Nanomaterials Can Solve Biological and Medical Problems

Sharjah, U.A.E | Posted on April 14th, 2023

Nanobiotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that currently engages researchers in conventional as well as advanced avenues of engineering and natural sciences. The recent developments in nanobiotechnology have impacted various socio-economic sectors, including medical, agriculture, food, textile, and other industries. Although the integration of nanomaterials with biology has led to the development of diagnostic devices, contrast agents, analytical tools, therapy, and drug-delivery vehicles, bionanotechnology research is still in its infancy. The full potential of developments in this field has yet to be realized. This book discusses various nano-engineered materials or nanocarriers that are used in different situations. It presents 8 chapters that cover the application of nanomaterials in environmental remediation, nano fertilizers, nano biotic against antimicrobial resistance, nano biosensors in pathogen detection, and nontoxicity assessments. Each chapter is structured into easy-to-read sections that explain fundamental and applied concepts of nanomaterials.

For example,

Drug delivery: Nanoparticles can be used as carriers to deliver drugs to specific cells or tissues in the body. For example, liposomes, which are nanoscale vesicles composed of lipids, can be loaded with drugs and targeted to cancer cells, allowing for more efficient and targeted delivery of chemotherapy.

Biosensors: Nanoparticles can be used to create highly sensitive biosensors for the detection of biomolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, and pathogens. For example, gold nanoparticles can be functionalized with specific antibodies to detect the presence of disease markers in the blood.

Imaging: Nanoparticles can be used as contrast agents for medical imaging, allowing for the visualization of specific tissues or cells. For example, iron oxide nanoparticles can be used as contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Readers will gain a current view of the biotechnological application of modern nanomaterials and nanoparticles. The book is intended to be a premier for students and researchers in agriculture, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering courses.
